52. BENJAMIN FRANKLIN IN LONDON

Generously sponsored by

During his decades in England, Benjamin Franklin befriended royalty, Prime Ministers, eminent scientists, philosophers and rogues but, nevertheless, became one of the ‘most mischievous Enemies this Country had ever known’. George Goodwin will reveal Franklin’s important role in British government, his dramatic escape from arrest in 1775 and how he became a leading architect of American victory.
