Take a walk through colonial and revolutionary Philadelphia with the man who knows the city just as well as he knew it two hundred and fifty years ago. Visit the places where Ben Franklin made a name for himself as a printer, inventor, and statesman, and hear about it firsthand with all the wit Ben is famous for. Come along with Ben to see the sights of historic Philadelphia, including the Liberty Bell, colonial Christ Church, and Independence Hall, and walk in the footsteps of the convicts Ben Franklin once hired to carry him there for the Constitutional Convention in 1787.
