Benjamin Franklin played a huge part in Revolutionary War, especially towards the end. Franklin served in the Second Congregational Congress in 1776, and in the same year helped draft the Declaration of Independence. Franklin also invented new postal routes, that travelled at night, and were important for communication. In 1783 Franklin negotiated the Treaty of Paris, which ultimately ended the war. After the war he represented our country, when he helped write the Constitution. All in all, Benjamin Franklin was not only a major contribution to our freedom, but to our society also.
