Finding a Founding Father at the National Postal Museum
U.S. Founding Father Benjamin Franklin offers something of interest to just about everyone. The younger set tends to be drawn to his kite-flying exploits, elders might explore his history with bifocals, and anyone in the workforce might appreciate his endeavors as perhaps one of the founder of his own personal gig economy.
Switching careers and changing the world—wouldn’t that be fulfilling for anyone? Yet, Benjamin Franklin—printer, journalist, diplomat, statesman, philosopher, and father of the United States Postal Service—also had some memorable exploits in France. He truly was a man for the ages. Adventurers of any sort might seek to find him in places they travel.
