Long before Benjamin Franklin (1706-90) served his country as a distinguished statesman he learned the value of hard work and thrift. The son of a soap maker, Franklin left school at 10 years of age to help his father in the family business. Despite the fact that Franklin had stopped attending school, his determination and active mind continued to explore new ideas and opportunities. By the time he had reached adulthood his scientific discoveries, his brilliant mind, and his social gifts had earned him a high place of respect. However, it was Franklin's deep love for his native land and his devotion to individual freedom that sustained him during the long violent years of the American Revolution. Franklin was a true American patriot.
