After about five weeks dealing with strong heads, Benjamin Franklin, a Deist in his youth, delivered a compelling speech that is not included in most Text books concerning the framing of the Constitution at Independence Hall.

He further reminded the men that all of them could remember that God had intervened on their behalves.
