Theirs was a three-decade-long bond that, more than any other pairing, would forge the United States. Vastly different men, Benjamin Franklin an abolitionist freethinker from the urban north and George Washington a slave holding general from the agrarian south were the indispensable authors of American independence and the two key partners in the attempt to craft a more perfect union at the Constitutional Convention, held in Franklin's Philadelphia and presided over by Washington. Today the United States is the worlds great superpower, and yet we also wrestle with the government Franklin and Washington created more than two centuries ago the power of the executive branch, the principle of checks and balances, the electoral college as well as the wounds of their compromise over slavery. Now, as the founding institutions appear under new stress, it is time to understand their origins through a fresh lens.
