Christian Di Spigna, Founding Martyr: The Life and Death of Dr. Joseph Warren, the American Revolution’s Lost Hero.

Though residing in Boston for much of his adult life, Warren had connections to Dedham. Speaker Christian Di Spigna will share information about Warren’s life in Boston, as well as what he uncovered in the Dedham Historical Society & Museum’s archives about Warren, his associations with Dedham residents, and other tantalizing details regarding his time in Dedham. Di Spigna is author of Founding Martyr: The Life and Death of Dr. Joseph Warren, the American Revolution’s Lost Hero.
