Ashcraft At the close of the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia in 1787, a woman allegedly approached Benjamin Franklin and asked, “Well, Doctor, what have we got – a republic or a monarchy?” The sage 81-year-old Franklin replied, “A republic, if you can keep it.” Wordsmith, entrepreneur, inventor, diplomat, and polymath, Franklin understood […]
