Voyage à travers la vie de Benjamin Franklin - Philadelphie - PA
Voyage à travers la vie de Benjamin Franklin: Few people in history have enjoyed such a symbiotic relationship with their city as Benjamin Franklin with Philadelphia. Inventor, scientist, businessman, manager, politician, philosopher, and patron—Franklin embodied the eclectic but directed energy of booming Philadelphia in the mid- and late-18th century.
In this three-hour walking seminar on Benjamin Franklin we will use him as a lens to discuss the great changes and social and political upheaval taking place in Philadelphia during the last half of the 18th century. Along the way, we'll look deeply into the biography of Franklin as we visit sites in Philadelphia that relate and come away with a more contextual understanding of his impact on American history.
