Benjamin Franklin (January 1706 April 17, 1790) was one of the most important Founding Fathers of the United States. He was a leading author, political theorist, politician, printer, scientist, inventor, civic activist, and diplomat. As a scientist he was a major figure in the history of physics for his discoveries and theories regarding electricity. As a political writer and activist he, more than anyone, invented the idea of an American nation, and as a diplomat during the American Revolution, he secured the French alliance that helped to make independence possible.

On Thomas Paine Plaza, which is directly behind Franklin, is Your Move. The blue splotches faintly visible are, I think, some of the Checkers pieces.
