    In the summer of 1776, 56 men put their quills to a dangerous document they called the Declaration of Independence. Among them was a 30-year-old doctor named Benjamin Rush. One of the youngest signatories, he was also, among stiff competition, one of the most visionary. From improbable beginnings as the son of a Philadelphia blacksmith, Rush grew into an internationally renowned writer, reformer, and medical pioneer who touched virtually every page in the story of the nation's founding. He was Franklin's protégée, the editor of Common Sense, and Washington’s surgeon general.
