Little has been known of one of the most important figures in early American history, Dr. Joseph Warren, an architect of the colonial rebellion and a man who might have led the country as Washington or Jefferson did had he not been martyred at Bunker Hill in 1775. After his death, his life and legend faded, leaving his contemporaries to rise to fame in his place and obscuring his essential role in bringing America to independence. Christian Di Spigna's definitive new biography of Warren is a loving work of historical excavation, the product of two decades of research and scores of newly unearthed primary-source documents that have given us this forgotten Founding Father anew.
