I really enjoyed the information you had on Benjamin Franklin. It helped me to get to know him. I'm really appreciated that he had invented electricity. Without it we wouldn't have a lot of things we have now.
jesus rodriguez, 11 years old [12-14-2002]
This a great website for kids. I got a lot of information for Benjamin Franklin. You have provided this wonderful site. I think this will help kids and people with their work and mine.

Just found this web site yesterday, really like it. Plan to peruse it all.
Bill Wilkes, Age 50, Mt Airy, MD [12-07-2002]
With true printing programs being removed in the high schools (anything without a computer is not technology, print me 10,000 copies from your ink jet printer)people do not understand that printing is a very important part of their life. Go to the store and purchase something without a printed box or label. I would like to see more information about Franklin the PRINTER!
Dennis Dougherty, Instructor, Graphic Communications & Printing Technology [12-07-2002]
I really enjoy this web site a lot. Brian Mckelley

I, personally, think that he was a smart man
teril, 14 [12-07-2002]
A wonderful web site. I recommend it to the groups I speak to as Benjamin Franklin. I have been concerned for some time that our children are not hearing about our early heros and Founding Fathers, Benjamin Franklin, George Washington, Sam Houston and others. Thanks for your great efforts in this effort.

Ben's "They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety." seems most appropriate today. Thank you for this resource.

A.M. Peterson, Spokane, WA [11-23-2002]
It is always amazing to me to see such talented man whose ego still allows him to compromise when necessary, change his mind with new evidence, and have the wisdom necessary to put his country above himself. I have no doubt he could never be elected in todays world.
Ed Whitehead [11-21-2002]
i auctally have a question. what was the date of when benjamin franklin invented electricty
kevin bennett, none [11-21-2002]
I saw the PBS document on Benjamin Franklin's life on TV the last two nights. His life was astounding and he gave so much it puts most of us to shame. He deeply effective me in a positive way to go on with my life. My mother recently died of pancreatic cancer, she was an idea woman and my sister and I were very close. He had the courage of his convictions and I will never his quotes, energy and will to live and give to the people.

Danny Modras, 14, dayton ohio [11-20-2002]
Enjoyed PBS series and learned a lot about a man that we mostly know for the "KEY" and the Declaration of Independence. Schools did not dwell on his life which would have been very informative

I have a book of Ben Franklin's Memoirs, written by him. It looks like he also signed it. Is there a place to see a sample of his signature? Did they make signature "stamps" back then?
I am in eigth grade, and in an acedemically talented class. right now I am doing a stack on various patriots from the Revolutionary time period. I believe that all people should be informed about the great people of our that time period. If you could please send me some info. on various patriots, or even just on Ben Franklin I would be very thankful.
Kim, 13 yrs old, and very interested in the revolutionary time period [10-07-2002]

If there's anything I've been grateful for good ol' ben for, it'd be his 13 virtues. I pride myself with the completion of any virtue I use everyday, they've shaped my mind into a positive, confident way of life. I feel like i am a better samaritan and other ppl notice it as well. GOO SHIIE

I did a report on Ben Franklin in 4th grade and he really interested me. I learned a lot, and I still remember some. He was bron on January 17, 1706 and he married Deborah Read Rogers in 1730. He dies on April 17, 1790 at age 84 of a desiese called... Gout, is it? I thinks so.

I grew up on Franklin; I lived in the Society Hill area of Philada; my mother worked for the Franklin Institute for several years (they even used me and my sister in publicity photos next to the Baldwin 60000 locomotive); my Scout Troop met on a site that he supposedly flew the kite on at 10th & Ludlow streets (I can provide a scan of our neckerchief patch in the shape of a kite); and I was always intrigued by his knowledge and worldliness.

I think you should create a page especially devoted to the 13 virtues and maybe create a game the kids can play to help learn them. Perhaps you could create a quiz to see how you are doing following the virtues and perhaps one to tell which you are doing the best at.

I am writing an 18th century novel, based on our genealogy. Ben Franklin was researching and writing at that time and I am having my family (who also was married to the Folgers in Nantucket) work in Dr. Frnaklin's employ, undocumented. Although my novel is historical fiction, the part involving Dr. Franklin is fact. I will not copy any of your work in my novel. But I like learning about him.

When the American troops left the city of Berlin (Germany) a few years ago, our hospital decided to change its name to University Hospital Benjamin Franklin. This hospital was a gift of the American people to our city. The funds were raised by Ellinor Dulles, sister of the late American minister John Foster Dulles by means of a Benjamin Franklin Foundation.

I was absolutely dumbfounded by everything I've learned about Franklin in just 20 minutes worth of reading. He is by far one of the most interesting and admirable men that I have known of. I think he is one of the greatest of role models!

This website is quite fascinating; however, I read something recently about Benjamin Franklin having sold slaves out of his shop. Is this true?

Joseph Bennett, Los angeles, age 57 [01-26-2002]
I have become very interested with Ben Franklin lately. I am curious about the rumors of Ben Franklin being with lots of women. He seems to be a very ethical person- a role model for Americans.
shaul gromer, 36 from New York [01-26-2002]
just discovered today have broesed on line for about 1 year. ben franklin has always been a history stand out. i grew up rural - attending the one room school for all eight grades. recalling a story from the reader. seems a mother and daughter lived in philadelphia. it was winter and the fire place wasnt heating well.their good friend mr franklin called to visit.he recogonised the problem.procuring some iron he was able to modify the fire place into a more efficent wood burning stove. i believe that to be true. how ironic as i bask this day with a modified steel fire place insert ttat i should discover this page.

I feel that when we as a nation need inspired leaders, they come forth. Th Revolutionary Era and the Founding of our National government are two through which great men acted, and Franklin was indeed one of those. I am deeply humbled by their work, by their diligence, by their vigil and I pray that we today may be worthy of the gift they have bequeathed unto us: Freedom.

I really like this site. I had learn quite a bit of his famous quotes. It's interesting to read the wisdom of this great man, to learn his humanity. I am sure I am going to read more often his quotes; perhaps,to try to live by them.
Lupe, Michigan, 52 original from Perú. [01-19-2002]
I was glad to see that the life,times, and works of Mr. Franklin included his love of GOD and country. Let it be noted; our founding fathers obtained the freedom to worship without setting the parameters we see today. It is indeed a sad day that such a powerful country we have limits the occassions and where we can speak of GOD. Thank you for painting the image of Mr. Franklin for us to see. I was looking to find what his thoughts were as Postmaster General.
B Wolfe [01-19-2002]
My son has a book report to do on Ben Franklin. When he does the book report my son has to dress up as Ben Franklin.and I think thats great.

Ben has been an inspiration since i first read about him,as he seemed the most enlightened and least assuming of our forefathers.. his brilliance is such that it has withstood the test of history and time..he was a memorable human and we would do well to have one like him in every generation.

"Do as I say and not as I do." could be applied to old Ben.Buy what he said is tried and true. Best to all!
Lois Sheridan, Las Vegas, Nv. [01-19-2002]
ben franklin was an amazing man, he was so prothetic in his quotes alone, that he helped me stop and think about my own life.He inspires me to contemplate, which is hardly true of anyone other than God and his "book" the Bible which I have read passages from and from time to time it brought some emotion with it but also fear that I really torn whether I really 100% believe. Did he "drink"? Well I do.
