I portray Mr. Franklin in the first person »

Looks like you just steped out of the pages of history!
--- A history reenactor




I portray Mr. Franklin in the first person. I feel I present him as I see him. A simple man with many layers. A wise man, with a wicked sense of humor. An intelligent man, always seeking simple solutions. His many writings have given us a picture of an incredible individual. However, today's average person only sees him as the man who flew a kite or the man on the $100 dollar bill. I would like to change that perception.
