The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin
The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin is a record of the life of one of the most impressive people in the American history. There may be no greater figure in American history than Benjamin Franklin and here the reader will delight in an intimate portrait of the man in his own words.
Benjamin went on to play a key role in the American Revolution and the founding of the United States. Franklin’s autobiography, published after his death, is an unfinished collection of memoirs written over four different periods of his life. It starts in the form of a letter to his son, William, and describes aspects of his childhood in Boston in the early 1700s and his move to Philadelphia where he set up a successful printing business.
