You can help us modernize! The present website has been online for a very long time and we want to bring it up to date. As of April 20, we are $4,600 away from our goal of $15,000 to fund the project. The fully redesigned site will be better for mobile, easier to read and navigate, and ready for the next decade. Please give today and join dozens of other supporters in making this important renovation possible!

                        The body of
                    B. Franklin, Printer
               (Like the Cover of an Old Book
                    Its Contents torn Out
          And Stript of its Lettering and Gilding)
                 Lies Here, Food for Worms.
               But the Work shall not be Lost;
        For it will (as he Believ'd) Appear once More
              In a New and More Elegant Edition
                    Revised and Corrected
                       By the Author.
              He was born on January 6, 1706.
                          Died 17


Note: this epitaph does not appear on Benjamin Franklin's gravestone. He wrote it as a young man.
