The Turtle was the first successful submarine. Built during the American Revolution by David Bushnell, it couldn't really submerge but only the conning tower protruded above the surface. The Turtle attacked the British fleet and while he failed to destroy any British ship, he did cause them to break their blockade out of fear, making the mission a success.

Benjamin Franklin is one of the most well known Founding Fathers of the United States. In 1730 Franklin acknowledged an illegitimate and only son William. In 1752 when William was 21 he assisted his father in the famed kite experiment. William later became a steadfast Loyalist throughout the Revolutionary War despite his father’s role as one of the most prominent Patriots during the conflict, a difference that tore the two apart.
