This volume explores the issues that divided patriots and loyalists at the time of the American Revolution. It illustrates this division by examining the lives of Benjamin Franklin - the most internationally renowned revolutionary - and his son, William, the last Royal Governor of New Jersey, who remained loyal to the English crown. Father and son exemplified men who desired the best for themselves and their country, yet who ultimately supported opposite sides in the American Revolution. A narrative looks at the personal background and political experiences of the two Franklins against the backdrop of events in colonial North America leading up to and during the Revolution. A selection of ten primary documents - including writings by Benjamin and William Franklin - follows the narrative. It also includes a chronology. Bookseller Inventory # BTE9780312086176
