POLITICAL LIFE AND BIRTHDAY
Political Life and Birthday
Ben Franklin was not only involved in the printing industry, but also had a successful political career. He acted as governor of Pennsylvania from 1785 to 1788 and represented Pennsylvania as a colony.
Franklin’s loyalty to England was reflected in his politics until the Stamp Act was introduced which led to his attempt to unite the colonies against England. He was also primarily responsible for persuading France to align with the Colonies during the Revolutionary War
