I found out by my old science teacher that Benjamin Franklin created the internet and if it wasn't for him I would be bored out of my mind! Thank you Bengy!
Angy [12-14-2010]

My history professor in college taught mostly about Franklin. It wasn't until I read Franklin's biography that I fully realised why, in all of history he would choose this man. After reading the biography I am astounded that he is not given due credit for the birth of our independance, it's success, in addition to all his other accomplishments. As he was reflected upon then by all the world who know him personally and of him, what an amazing man.

Nicki :) [12-08-2010]

this was a very very smart man and i think that he deserves a statue to remember him always as the man who discovered electricity and became a lot of things in life and had a very interesting life

This website is really cool and it made me realize how awesome Ben Franklin really was. I didn't realize exactly HOW MUCH he did including all the political positions he held and the pamphlets he wrote. He was a cool guy.

Rebecca Fluta [12-07-2010] »»»

The entire Ben section was great. The information was given in a very conversational way, which made it seem to flow better than a textbook would. I was shocked to read that Franklin had cheated on his wife and had an illegitimate child. Its funny how people completely overlooked that because of all the progress and greatness he achieved. Everything was very well done...except that Ben cheats at checkers.

Ben Franklin was way ahead of his time! He was an incredible inventor, author, politician, and just overall person. We owe the usage of several things to him. If he never existed history would be quite different. But thankfully he did and he did things "worth writing"... Benjamin Franklin is a truly amazing historical figure!

Benjamin speaks out against British Parliament in 1766 :)
Hayley, 10, Kentucky [12-06-2010] »»»

I've always been a fan of Ben, but learning so much about him has made me realize how amazing he really was! I especially enjoyed reading about Silence Dogood. A man at that time talking about the way women were treated is awesome, even if he was doing it from the anonymity of a false name. Ben Franklin is and always will be my favorite person in the history of America.

Benjamin Franklin was a maker of history, WAY ahead of his time.He was one of the clearest prolific thinkers ever.He is even inspiring today.If given a chance ; I would want to visit with HIM more than any other person in History.He's one of the original 'mans man' The more I delve into his life the more I thirst for more of his wisdom.Sites like these should be 'must read' in our schools!I share the gift of invention he had...that is the ONLY kinship I can say I share with such a great man,whose ability to look at world facts and be prophetic on so may subjects is 1 more fact that make him truly amazing.God Bless ya Ben.

I really enjoyed the diary of Temple Franklin. I was intrigued at the intelligence of this young man. I must say though, that I was a little disappointed to find out that this was written by another. However, I am very glad that you did. It was a very interesting perspective and story. Thank you.

taste of life is different. We sometimes don't want to satisfied others but if we take a look about a business concept. the customer is the kind. if we are just worker, we don't like we don't want to do but we are business owner though we don't want but we have to do the best to succeed this business. I mean that life is wonderful we have to achieve everything though failure some time. Life is so complicated but just say You have to life this the happiest way.

Benjamin Franklin (January 17, 1706 [O.S. January 6, 1705 April 17, 1790) was one of the Founding Fathers of the United States of America. A noted polymath, Franklin was a leading author and printer, satirist, political theorist, politician, scientist, inventor, civic activist, statesman, soldier, and diplomat. As a scientist, he was a major figure in the Enlightenment and the history of physics for his discoveries and theories regarding electricity. He invented the lightning rod, bifocals, the Franklin stove, a carriage odometer, and the glass 'armonica'. He formed both the first public lending library in America and the first fire department in Pennsylvania. He was an early proponent of colonial unity, and as a political writer and activist, he supported the idea of an American nation.

Whenever I do a research paper on Ben, I learn new things about him. The further I read intoo his life, and thought the more inspired I get. Long after his death, he still has the ability to teach, inspire, humor, and make people think. Things that would make him proud
