But just days after receiving her cherished ring, it is snatched from her grasp.


As one of America’s most versatile of the Founding Fathers, Benjamin Franklin began his career in his brother s printing press. He was known for his great printing skills. He ran and wrote articles for The New England Courant, the first “newspaper” in Boston. Running the Courant showed Ben that he could handle the responsibility or running a press without the help of his brother, James. He is credited with the creation of Poor Richard s Almanac.

Ben Franklin’s daring scientific discoveries which included the conductivity of electricity, performed by flying a kite in a storm, progressed society significantly. We still use some of his inventions today like bifocals, lightning rods, and the American public library system.
