Benjamin Franklin ... Founding Father, Statesman, and Great Amerincan PatriotGreat American Patriot Badge Sample - smallBenjamin Franklin proposed a broad Plan of Union for the colonies in 1754 with some aspects being used for the Articles of Confederation and the Constitution.Benjamin Franklin was a member of the Committee of Five who drafted the Declaration of Independence.

The following expressed words of Benjamin Franklin (1706 to 1790) characterize who this Founding Father was . . . and will remain as a Great American Patriot.

  • "Where liberty is, there is my country."

  • "They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety."

  • "Without Freedom of Thought there can be no such Thing as Wisdom; and no such Thing as Public Liberty, without Freedom of Speech."

  • "It is a common observation here that our cause is the cause of all mankind, and that we are fighting for their liberty in defending our own."

Benjamin Franklin not only expressed his love and pride of the United States of America in what he spoke and wrote . . . he did so in action.

And if he was a younger man at the time of the American Revolution . . . what other leadership role might this gifted, visionary have served on behalf of our newly formed "independent" nation?

Benjamin Franklin's patriotic endeavors included...

  • Benjamin Franklin founded in 1736 . . . the Union Fire Company, one of the first volunteer fire fighting companies in America.

  • Benjamin Franklin is the only Founding Father to sign the Declaration of Independence, the United States Constitution, the Treaty of Alliance with France (1778), and the Treaty of Paris (1783).

Also, please take a few minutes to experience Benjamin Franklin's Thoughts on the Constitution and read his biography . . . And visit the Library of Congress' Finding Franklin: A Resource Guide for more information about this Great American Patriot including his many other writings.

Note... See the results of a 2005 poll showing Benjamin Franklin as the first choice among other listed Great Americans other than a President.
