Good episode? Give it some love!
Who gets to be a founding father?
“Founding Father” status goes to men who helped found the United States. That means the 56 men who signed the Declaration of Independence, those who led the Continental Army, and the 36 delegates who signed the Constitution. We’re talking about more than 100 men and yet, we don’t really talk about more than a handful of these “founders” as Founders.
Stephen Fried, an award-winning journalist and author of Rush: Revolution, Madness, and Benjamin Rush, the …, joins us to explore the life and deeds of one founder we don’t always talk about, Benjamin Rush.
