In 1744, at a con ference between Indians and the colonists, an Iroquois leader noted that the colonial system was impossible for the Indians to deal with, with 13 different governments.� If the colonies came together, as the Iroquois did, it would be far easier, administratively.� Franklin took the Iroquois's observation seriously, and in 1754 Franklin introduced his Albany Plan of Union, which is considered the first step toward the creation of the USA's Constitution. [166] � A large delegation of the Iroquois Grand Council was there to advise Franklin and the colonists on forming their confederacy.� Franklin played a crucial role in the American Revolution, being the ambassador to France and parlaying his celebrity into gaining French assistance, without which the American Revolution probably would not have succeeded.� While the Americans rarely had 10,000 soldiers in the field at any time, the French committed more than 30,000 soldiers to the American Revolution.� At the final battle of the Revolutionary War, the siege of Yorktown, there were as many French soldiers and sailors as American soldiers.� Thirty French warships, cutting off the British Army from receiving reinforcements, proved decisive.� Little did the French know it, but their support of the American Revolution would help lead to their own, which began in 1789 but ended with Napoleon’s power grab.� Franklin is asso ciated with Philadelphia, but he was from Boston and his attitude toward the Indians displayed the Puritans’ genocidal intentions more than Quaker pacifism.� Even though Franklin was an emissary to the Iroquois and gained a deep appreciation of their government, he openly pondered the coming annihilation of the all Native Americans, writing, “…if it be the design of Providence to extirpate these Savages…” then he thought that rum was the preferred means. [167] � I discovered that although Franklin became the father of American freedom of the press, once more practice and theory were at odds.� While Franklin and his cohorts plotted their rebellion, religious pacifists in Pennsylvania wanted no part of an armed insurrection.� The false dichotomy was directed at them.� If they were not for armed insurrection, then they must have been Loyalists to the Crown.
