As I have mentioned before I am a history major and I love broadway and musicals. One musical that combines this is 1776 which is about the Continental Congress leading up to the writing and signing of the Declaration of Independence. Sounds super exciting to non-history loving people I am sure.
Anyways I was doing a project on Ben Franklin’s invention the stove last week and while looking up a way to cite a movie Disney did about Franklin’s inventions (and how it was a mouse that gave him his ideas) the World Catalog kept thinking I was looking up Franklin the Turtle.
<– Yes… this guy.
So I figured mashing up the Franklin theme song with scenes of Ben Franklin from 1776 would be interesting. The theme song to Franklin was only 1 min or so long though so it was only one scene from the movie with a transition into someone painting a portrait of Franklin.
Here’s the final product.
