  • Ben's experiments involving lightning and electricity
  • His many inventions such as the lighting rod, bifocals, the glass armonica and others
  • His proverbs from Poor Richard's Almanack
  • Ben's beliefs on thrift, frugality, and hard work
  • His role in American history, such as signing the Declaration of Independence, the French Alliance, and the Treaty of Paris
  • And many other interesting, amusing, and informative aspects of his amazing life.
