Audiobook Summary:A publisher, printer, author, scientist, and inventor - and a success in every field - Benjamin Franklin made his greatest accomplishments as America's first diplomat. When he sailed for England in 1764, he intended to petition Parliament in London for a redress of grievances of the state of Pennsylvania, but his energies were soon enlisted by the whole of the Thirteen Colonies. This recording - compiled from Franklin's own letters, papers, and original documents - recounts the diplomat's brilliant campaign to have Grenville's infamous Stamp Act repealed.
