There was a fourteenth colony, called Franklin. In 1784, some citizens in North Carolina voted to secede from the state, naming their new state "Franklin" in honor of Ben Franklin. Sadly, for the Franklinites, Congress wouldn't let Franklin join the union. They continued as an independent republic for a few years, but eventually got absorbed into Tennessee.
