Benjamin banaker was born in 1731 on a farm by a Europe woman and a black man. He died in 1806 but his name was well know for building Washington after the man who was going to build Washington went back to France after being fired. Benjamin first invited the first American clock by taking the parts from the French clock and made his own when he was 21 years old the clock worked for over 50 years. After the first American clock Thomas Jefferson sent him a letter asking to help build Washington they had all the plan but the man who made made them was fired and took all the plans back to France but luckily he rembered the plans and made Washington.
