897. My First Summary About Benjamin Franklin
As time passed, Ben's visits to Europe and England's Stamp Act, on July 26, 1775, the colonists eventually made the decision to separate themselves from England and elected Ben as the postmaster general of the Continental Congress. As the postmaster general, Ben became the leader or the first President of the new nation. Ben's first act in 1775 (from Oct 4 to Nov. 13), with two Continental Congress members, was to travel to the George Washington camp at Cambridge in order to organize the Continental Army.
Then, on July 4, 1776, the Declaration of Independence was drafted by Thomas Jefferson and was modified considerably by Ben. Further, the Constitution was adopted on December 7, 1787. But, the Constitution had been outlined by Ben with the Confederation and Perpetual Union in 1775. On April 30, 1790, George Washington became the president of the USA after Ben died on April 17, 1790. Thus, I say that George Washington was not the first president of the United States of America.
To develop a nation of thirteen colonies in America, in 1766 Ben began to study the changes that Europe was making new sciences in the 15th, 16th, and 17th centuries. Ben began to study these centuries when he was elected to the German Royal Society of Science at Gottingen. In 1772, Ben returned to Europe and was elected to the French Academy of Science. At these two academies, Ben learned that European nations would be making democracies and governments based on John Locke's Second Treatise of Government. In Europe, Ben would also learn that the universe was continuous and was created by an infinite God. When Ben was dying in 1790, he added two statements in his autobiography as follows: (1) that the continuous universe includes immortal souls and (2) that Jesus is not the divinity of the infinite God.
After Ben's death, Ben's Confederation and Perpetual Union of the Constitution was continued by Alexander Hamilton, Henry Clay and presidents such as George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, ----. and Abe Lincoln. But, after Abe Lincoln was assassinated, the republicans and democrats began to change the USA that Ben found in Europe. For example, the Declaration of Independence only becomes a document that Americans read. The Constitution is developing. But it is merely developing a necessary economic system of rich and poor Americans. This necessary development is ungodly because all Americans must develop more perfect Unions.
