  • Other, : Benjamin was one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence. He was a member of the Virginia House of Burgesses for Charles City County from 1749 - 1775. He represented Charles City County in the Revolutionary Conventions in 1775. He also represented Virginia in the 1st and 2nd Continental Congresses and was a Signator of the Declaration of Independence. While at the Continental Congress, his convival ways and gamy humor often proved an irritation to John Adams of Boston. On 15 October 1775, Benjamin was part of a Congressional Commission that included Benjamin Franklin of Pennsylvania and Thomas Lynch of Carolina sent to Boston to meet with then General Washington and urge an attack on Boston, but General Washingtons generals indicated that it was imprudent at the time. In November of 1775, Benjamin was appointed to a commission "for the sole purpose of corresponding with our friends in Great Britan, Ireland and other parts of the world." Also on the commission were Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Johnson, John Dickinson, John Jay and Robert Morris.
