On this episode of Our American Stories, Dr. Benjamin Rush is America’s forgotten Founding Father; perhaps it’s because many historians don’t know what to do about his outspoken faith, after all, he wrote the essay, A Defense of the Bible as a Schoolbook. Rush is now known as the Father of Psychiatry, the Army Medical Corps, Veterinary Care, and biblically-taught Public Schools. Rush was the one who encouraged Thomas Paine to write “Common Sense,” which fueled the American Revolution. Harlow Giles Unger is a New York Times bestselling author of twenty-eight books including Dr. Benjamin Rush: The Founding Father Who Healed a Wounded Nation.
