Benjamin Franklin was also considered one of the Founding Fathers of the United States of America. He was a well-known author. Many of his writings caused great uproar when the colonies were having such political differences with England (Great Britain). In fact, some people said he was a revolutionary because his literary works helped the people in fighting to leave (separate from) England and become their own country . He is noted for his many inventions, as well. His major inventions were that of electricity, the lightning rod, and a cooking stove. Benjamin Franklin was a former speaker of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives.
His writings include Poor Richard’s Almanack. He was focused on improving one’s one behavior and even wrote a list of 13 virtues that he tried to improve on throughout his life. He wrote these at the early age of 20.
They are as follows: 1. Temperance, 2. Silence, 3. Order, 4. Resolution, 5. Frugality, 6. Industry, 7. Sincerity, 8. Justice, 9. Moderation, 10. Cleanliness, 11. Tranquility, 12. Chastity, and 13. Humility. Franklin was an excellent reader, but did not graduate from any well- known school or college. He was as some would say, self- educated. His family did not have the money to send him to school.
