Virtual Zoom

Benjamin Franklin invites you to hear his stories of his youth, his inventions, and people of the revolution.

Benjamin Franklin invites you to hear his stories of his youth, his inventions (including the lightning rod, stove, bifocal glasses and swim fins), public institutions (the first: police force, volunteer fire department,  lending library and hospital) and people of the revolution: cantankerous John Adams, bilious Arthur Lee, the bumbling British, the fascinating French and the double-dealing Dutch.  He will also tell stories of spies, secret codes, court intrigues and Congressional jealousies.

This presentation will be done virtually by Zoom.  Please register for this program to be sent the login information and instructions for Zoom.
