361. Dr. Dave Wang's Speech on Benjamin Franklin and the Great Wall of China

This poster is a kind of old, which was designed in 2007. However, I feel that it is interesting. It serves as a memory for Dr. Dave Wang's speech, Benjamin Franklin and the Great Wall of China, at Benjamin Franklin House in London. The house is the only museum in London for this great founding father of the United States. Franklin lived in this house from 1757 to 1775.

Most readers of my blog have been amazed by Franklin's vision to use valuable elements from Chinese civilization in his efforts to build a great nation in North America. I don't remember if any other prestigious figures in North American colonies raised the notion of the Great Wall of China around the founding of the United States.
