History

All About the Benjamin.

“If you would not be forgotten, as soon as you are dead and rotten, either write things worth reading, or do things worth the writing.” Scientist, inventor, philanthropist, statesman, diplomat, epigrammist, satirist, exemplar, and a bon vivant and ladies’ man to boot…If George Washington is the Father of our Country, then he’s definitely our Favorite Uncle: Ben Franklin turns 300. Happy birthday!

  1. I’m actually reading Jeff Shaara’s ‘Rise to Rebellion’ right now. It’s very inspiring. People with real political ideologies who are willing to sacrafice everything for freedom. I agree, Kevin, definitely my Favorite Uncle!
