As we honor those who fought and died in the Battle of Bunker Hill on June 17, 1775, NEWRA hosted a presentation by Samuel A. Forman about Dr. Joseph Warren, beloved North End physician, leader of the rebellion in Boston that led to the birth of our nation, dispatcher of Paul Revere on his famous ride, and brave patriot killed in action at the Battle of Bunker Hill at age 32.

Samuel A. Forman is a historian, physician, Harvard University adjunct faculty member and businessman. He recently authored a new book, Dr. Joseph Warren: The Boston Tea Party, Bunker Hill, and the Birth of American Liberty.

  1. I’m very glad Joseph Warren is getting more exposure, as with different perspectives of what happened on Bunker Hill. If it wasn’t for Nathaniel Philbrick’s latest book I wouldn’t really have thought much about Dr. Warren. How different would things have turned out if Warren hadn’t died? Philbrick has an interview lined up with WNBP AM 1450 ‘The Book Report’ radio show to talk about “Bunker Hill”, and hopefully how he came about focusing so much on this individual.
