I think Franklin gets progressively larger every time I draw him??
HISTORY LESSON: Though Franklin was not originally the one to suggest this 'meeting,' he did, as he mentions, help hold the Albany Congress in 1754, several years before the Revolution. While it didn't have much to do with the independence movement (it was mostly about deciding what to do with the Indian tribes and dealing with the French post-Seven Years War), it did primarily feature Franklin's Albany Plan, which was, ultimately, rejected.
But it was one of the first meeting where delegates from different colonies gathered together to discuss a plan of action - as the Student Body Council at the school would. And thus, thanks to much talk of a revolution from the Sons and a lot of tea being wasted, the First Continental Congress was conceptualized.
