In 1793, there was an outbreak of Yellow Fever in Philadelphia. One of our America's founding fathers, Dr. Benjamin Rush, chose to remain in the city and treated as many as 120 victims a day. When he contracted the illness himself, Rush continued to help other victims from his own sick bed. Such was the selfless, honorable character of many of the early founders who - motivated by their Christian faith - sacrificed so much to establish the United States as a nation of virtue and freedom. On this broadcast, join Drive Thru History host Dave Stotts for a fascinating look at some of the inspiring men and women from the Revolutionary War period.
