Franklin worked with his friends at the Assembly to pass a volunteer militia law and make provisions for the security of the colony. Franklin proposed a lottery to raise money to finance its purchase and approached business acquaintances in New York who help supply cannons.

Since the beginning of his service he proposed bills for defense which were passed by the Assembly in 1752, 1753 and 1754 but were vetoed by Governors Hamilton and Morris under the direction of Thomas Penn. The bills called for taxation on the Penn family estates to raise revenue to finance the militia which the Penn family, owner of the province, opposed.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
