Episode Summary

EDIT
Poor Richard
AIRED:
Dramatized incidents are used to show how Benjamin Franklin delayed a conference between Lord Howe and John Adams until the spring rainy season commenced, thereby allowing General Washington to extricate his troops from Long Island under the cover of a storm. This drama sent the "old and obstinate" Franklin to delay American surrender talks with the British, thereby allowing General George Washington to escape capture to fight another day.moreless
