Benjamin Franklin a true renaissance man was a leading writer, printer, political philosopher, politician, Freemason, postmaster, scientist, inventor, humorist, civic activist, statesman, and diplomat. Perhaps his greatest act was negotiating a truce on behalf of the United States with Great Britain during the 1783 Treaty of Paris.
