About The Book

In spite of being dead for more than two hundred years, Benjamin Franklin remains an object of fascination for many history buffs. He was a diplomat, postmaster, political theorist, politician, scientist, satirist, musician, civic activist, and so much more. With his manifold accomplishments, it is nearly impossible to believe that still so little could be known about him.

In The True Benjamin Franklin, Sydney George Fisher showcases a Benjamin Franklin not seen in other stories of the man’s life. Following him from his time as a boy who wrote articles in Boston for his brother’s paper to his years as a statesman, inventor, and diplomat, The True Benjamin Franklin tells the story in a wider scope than Franklin’s own autobiography. From political intrigue with the British and French to his children out of wedlock, this is a comprehensive biography of one of the most fascinating politicians in American history.
