Definitely an insightful analysis of Ben Franklin's true personality. Some revolutionaries fight for an idea, some become ardent revolutionary leaders because of personal grievances. Wood demonstrated than with Franklin the latter was mostly the case. The Founding Fathers weren't Gods, neither was Franklin
