Franklin and Bache

Envisioning the Enlightened Republic

Jeffery A. Smith

Regarded by Thomas Jeffferson as "the greatest man" of the age, Benjamin Franklin was a principal force in developing the egalitarian philosophy that Jefferson came to represent. Franklin impressed his ideals on his grandson, Benjamin Franklin Bache, who became Jefferson's most militant journalistic ally in the fierce ideological confrontations of the 1790s. In this dual biography, Smith examines the lives and careers of these two influential figures.
