Now in his 70s, Franklin is the oldest revolutionary leader. Congress sends Franklin to France in an effort to secure an alliance with England's rival; Franklin's political skills help him coax the French to support the American cause, leading to final American victory at Yorktown. With peace secured, Franklin returns home. Two years later, an ailing Franklin enters the constitutional convention to guide rancorous delegates.
