Om The Compleated Autobiography by Benjamin
Benjamin Franklins autobiography is one of the greatest autobiographies of all time&mdahs;but it was incomplete. Franklin ended his lifes story in 1757, when he was fiftyone. He lived another thirtythree eventful years, serving as Americas advocate in London, Pennsylvanias representative in the Continental Congress, and Americas wartime ambassador to France. Here is the rest of the story, in Franklins own words. One of the most fascinating of our founding fathers, Franklin was a polymath, a practical statesman, and an incomparable cynic and wit. The Compleated Autobiography by Benjamin Franklin, faithfully compiled and edited from Franklins papers, reveals why he became a spokesman for American independence as well as his views on the Constitution, such fellow patriots as Adams and Jefferson, on French women, and more. Mark Skousen is a descendant of Benjamin Franklin through Franklins grandson Louis Bache.
