There are trails through time blazed by almost invisible figures, including one of the greatest heroes of the American Revolution: Dr. Joseph Warren.
Philip Strouse shines a spotlight on the critical role that the physician played in Boston and throughout the provinces to bring forth revival and revolution in this biography that considers Dr. Warren in the context of other history-making Josephs.
Across the centuries, there were Josephs who stepped in to stabilize societies and to initiate major movements that upended the status quo.
From antiquity to the relatively recent birth of the United States of America, these often-overlooked agents set the stage upon which others postured, prospered, and progressed. Through selfless acts and sheer resolve, they propelled succeeding generations into unimaginable realms.
While this book highlights several Josephs throughout history, it zeroes in on Warren, who may have been the most enigmatic Joseph of all. What he did-and did not do-continues to reverberate around the globe.
Join the author as he reveals how Warren chose to serve others rather than be served and explains how his life reflects an ultimate archetype from long ago.
