Before the advent of modern antibiotics, one’s life could be abruptly shattered by contagion and death. Debility from infectious diseases and epidemics was commonplace for early Americans, regardless of social status. As both victirms of illness and national leaders, the Founders occupied a unique position regarding the development of public health in America; republic ideals fostered a reciporcal connection between individual health and the “health” of the nation. Focusing on founders such as the Washingtons, the Adamses, Franklin, and Jefferson not only provides us with a richer and more nuanced insight into their lives, but also opens a window into the practice of medicine in the 18th century.
