From itM’s Signature Drinks Across the USA Series Part 3
Who knew the son of a soap maker would be one of the most important men in American history? Pennsylvania was home to Benjamin Franklin, one of the founding fathers of the United States. During his spare time, when he wasn’t running the Pennsylvania Gazette, inventing bifocals or experimenting with electricity, he was inventing the stove, mapping the Gulf Stream, and developing an odometer. As a global society whose success has relied on our ability to be one step ahead of everyone else, it’s safe to say we will always be in his debt.
