I saw your post in Google Earth Community.

I believe Benjamin Franklin may be the most under-appreciated of the Founding Fathers. I have attached a Google Earth folder I made from the places mentioned in H.W. Brands' biography of Franklin, The First American. It includes historic overlays of Boston and Philadelphia, and the places he lived and visited in Europe. If you're a Franklin fan, I hope you enjoy it.
