Franklin was in charge of printing the paper and also writing articles (The Electric Ben Franklin 5). Once again, Franklin used different names other than his own when submitting the articles.

The first person to write a dictionary of American English and permanently alter the spelling of American English, Noah Webster through his spelling book taught millions of American children to read for the first half-century of the republic and millions more to spell for the following half-century.

After graduating, he taught at Connecticut district schools before studying for the bar. The dismal conditions of these schools, combined with his patriotism and a search for self-identity, inspired him to compose three schoolbooks that, he believed, would unify the new nation through speaking and writing a common language.

Cassatt would send paintings back to the United States to be exhibited and her works were some of the first impressionists paintings seen in the US. Mary Cassatt remained in France and helped teach others who were interested in the art of Impressionism. She developed diabetes which took her vision from her slowly. She later suffered from ill health and was totally blind at her death in France on June 4th, 1926.
