Franklin is often referred to as “The First American” due to his relentless effort in support of the colonies and for his work as the first United States Ambassador to France. He represented the spirit of the emerging United States.

Franklin was an example of the developing American lifestyle and values that included thriftiness, hard work, education, community spirit, self-governing institutions and opposition to political and religious authoritarianism, with the scientific and tolerant values of the Enlightenment.
