History Essay

posted by .

This essay is on Benjamin Franklin, and I was wondering why he went to Philadelphia at only 17. Did he run away or did his parents send him away? Where did he stay and work while he was there? I've researched on Google, but I can't find any good information. Also, why did his parents take him out of grammar school when he was 9?

Read the section called Early Life.

Thank you! Perfect!
