Founding Martyr: the Life and Death of Dr. Joseph Warren

Monday, October 216:30—8:30 PMSimoni RoomMorrill Memorial Library33 Walpole St., Norwood, MA, 02062

"Founding Martyr" is an illuminating biography of America's forgotten Founding Father, Dr. Joseph Warren, the patriot physician and major general who incited rebellion and died heroically at the Battle of Bunker Hill on the brink of revolution. Warren was involved in almost every major insurrectionary act in the Boston area for a decade, from the Stamp Act protests and the Boston Massacre to the Boston Tea Party. His incendiary writings included the famous Suffolk Resolves, which helped unite the colonies against Britain and inspired the Declaration of Independence.

In his presentation, author Christian Di Spigna will talk about the new discoveries he made about Dr. Warren. He'll deconstruct the many Warren legends and explore his resistance activities between 1765-1775 as he rose to the heights of power.

Mr. Di Spigna graduated with a degree in history from Columbia University, where he began his research on Warren. He lives in Williamsburg, Virginia and volunteers for the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, in addition to working closely with many period scholars.
