Excerpt from Life and Times of Joseph Warren

When preparing, in 1849, an introduction to a narrative of the military transactions in 1775 and 1776, contained in a volume entitled "History of the Siege of Boston," &c., I found but meagre accounts of the revolutionary movement in the town from 1767 to 1775. The space allotted to it in Dr. Snow's History is about thirty pages. It was not a part of the plan of William Tudor, in his "Life of James Otis," or of Josiah Quincy, in his "Memoir of the Life of Josiah Quincy, jun.," to describe it in these valuable works; nor could the subject be treated with the fulness it requires in a history of Massachusetts or of the United States.

I found, moreover, that Joseph Warren was identified with the whole of this movement as an efficient political leader.

John Frost (1800-1859) was a Professor and author of historical biographies, who graduated from Harvard in 1822.

Dr. Joseph Warren 1741 – 1775) was an American physician who played a leading role in American Patriot organizations in Boston in the early days of the American Revolution, eventually serving as president of the revolutionary Massachusetts Provincial Congress. Warren enlisted Paul Revere and William Dawes on April 18, 1775, to leave Boston and spread the alarm that the British garrison in Boston was setting out to raid the town of Concord and arrest rebel leaders John Hancock and Samuel Adams. Warren participated in the next day's Battles of Lexington and Concord, which are commonly considered to be the opening engagements of the American Revolutionary War.

Warren had been commissioned a Major General in the colony's militia shortly before the June 17, 1775 Battle of Bunker Hill. Rather than exercising his rank, Warren served in the battle as a private soldier, and was killed in combat when British troops stormed the redoubt atop Breed's Hill. His death, immortalized in John Trumbull's painting, The Death of General Warren at the Battle of Bunker's Hill, June 17, 1775, galvanized the rebel forces. He has been memorialized in the naming of many towns, counties and other locations in the United States, by statues, and in numerous other ways.

Roughly 40 miles from New York City, Brentwood is situated in the direct center of Long Island. From its founding under the name Modern Times by the anarchists Josiah Warren and Steven Pearl Andrews in 1852 to its rapid and extensive growth as a suburban bedroom community in the 20th century, Brentwood has always been an area undergoing struggle, change, and development. In the first half of the 20th century, the Long Island Rail Road ushered in Irish, Italian, and Russian families that influenced the once utopian society; by the century’s end, Brentwood would be home to a notable Hispanic diaspora community. The construction of St. Joseph’s Convent, Pilgrim State Psychiatric Hospital, and the Brentwood School District brought jobs to the area and bolstered population growth.

Not illustrated. 1865 edition. Excerpt: ... the town mostly suspended business and flocked to the Old South; and the people came in for twenty miles around. "Nearly seven thousand persons," it is said, "gentlemen, merchants, yeomen, and others, respectable for their rank and abilities and venerable for their age and character, constituted the assembly." It was remarked there was a greater meeting of the Body than ever, and its spirit surprised all those who viewed the scene. The committee chosen to accompany Rotch to the collector reported in detail the manner in which the application for a clearance had been denied. Rotch, by order, came in, and was told that he was expected to make his protest at the Custom House, apply to the governor for his pass to go by the castle, and proceed on this day with his vessel on his voyage for London; when he replied that it was impracticable to comply with this requirement. He was told that the twenty days in which he promised the Body his vessel should sail expired this day; and, being asked whether he would now direct the "Dartmouth" to sail, replied that he would not. The meeting, after directing Rotch to use all possible dispatch in making his protest and procuring his pass, adjourned until three o'clock. The afternoon proceedings may be as briefly related, though the report occupies over a column of the journals. Information was given that several towns had agreed not to use tea; when it was voted that its use was improper and pernicious; and that it would be well for all the towns to appoint committees of inspection, "to prevent this detested tea" from coming among them. It was moved, "whether it be the sense and determination of this body to abide by their former resolutions with respect to the not...

Life and Times of Joseph Warren.
xix, 558 pp. 4-page publisher catalog bound in between front endpapers. 8vo. Original maroon cloth, blind-stamped borders, gilt titles & rules. Frontispiece of Warren from a picture by Copley, engraved by H.W. Smith. A biography of the doctor who played a large role in leadership and organization during the American Revolution, and was killed during the Battle of Bunker Hill. Warren's younger brother was also a doctor who became a Harvard Medical School professor of anatomy and surgery. Sabin 26083. More about Warren: "Warren came to prominence as a spokesman for the anti-British, or Liberty, faction in Massachusetts politics during the controversy over the Stamp Act of 1765. In speeches at Faneuil Hall, Warren unequivocally repudiated Parliament's power to tax the colonies and advocated resistance to efforts to enforce the law. His active presence at town meetings, where he was usually accompanied by such leading patriots as John Hancock, James Otis, and Samuel Adams, and his skill as a propagandist, which he displayed most notably in the pages of the Boston Gazette, played a key role in arousing and sustaining the resistance movement... Not only were Warren's abilities with a pen and as an orator critical to the success of the propaganda campaign, but his status as one of the most respected doctors in the province gave the patriot movement a legitimacy among professional men as well. In addition, his leadership and skills as an organizer made possible the quick formation of new sources of provincial authority in the turbulent aftermath of Lexington and Concord. No man, with the possible exception of Samuel Adams, did so much to bring about the rise of a movement powerful enough to lead the people of Massachusetts to revolution."
