Benjamin Franklin's Birthday
Born in Boston MA in 1706, one of thirteen children of a puritan family, died in Philadelphia on April 17th, 1790. Day to remember the great early american scientist, thinker and statesman. Franklin is remembered for his Poor Richards Almanac, the discovery of the electrical nature of lightning leading to the invention of the lightning rod, and for his political activities in pre-revolutionary America. Because Franklin recommended thrift, some schools start a Thrift Week on his birthday.
