Synopsis: Benjamin and William Franklin explores the issues that divided patriots and loyalists at the time of the American Revolution by examining the lives of Benjamin Franklin - the most internationally renowned American revolutionary - and his son William, the last royal governor of New Jersey, who remained loyal to the British crown. An engaging narrative of 150 pages 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 8 primary documents - including writings by Benjamin and William Franklin - will enrich students' understanding of the events and issues of this period. Benjamin and William Franklin also contains questions to consider when reading the documents, a chronology of the two men's lives, a bibliography, and an index.
