The monumental life of Benjamin Rush, medical pioneer and one of our most provocative and unsung Founding Fathers.
By the time he was thirty, Dr. Benjamin Rush had signed the Declaration of Independence, edited Common Sense, toured Europe as Benjamin Franklin’s protégé, and become John Adams’s confidant, and was soon to be appointed Washington’s surgeon general. And as with the greatest Revolutionary minds, Rush was only just beginning his role in 1776 in the American experiment. Rush reveals his singular life and towering legacy, installing him in the pantheon of our wisest and boldest Founding Fathers.
