Quiz: Legends & Lies Episode 3 - Benjamin Franklin
After a decade cavorting with elites in London, Benjamin Franklin returns to America under a cloud of suspicion and accusations that he's a traitor secretly collaborating with the enemy. But Franklin is eager to prove himself a patriot and uses his exceptional intellect to prove it to his fellow Congressmen. Soon, the elder statesman becomes the strongest voice for revolution in the Continental Congress, and when George Washington takes command of the ragtag Continental Army, Franklin heads a secret committee to prepare the fledgling army to take on the most powerful military force in the world.
