The  Legacy  Of  Doctor Benjamin  Tusten
 

 
AN  UNKNOWN  HERO  OF  THE  AMERICAN  REVOLUTION
 
On July 29, 1779, just above the Delaware River near Barryville, New York, American Minutemen Militia were badly beaten by a raiding party of British Tories and their allied Mohawk Native-Americans.
 
Although the Battle of Minisink was considered an American loss, there were still many American heroes.    One hero, the second in command of the American Militia, was wounded early in the battle.  A doctor by profession, instead of thinking of his own wound, he treated the wounded Americans for hours.
 
Four hours into the battle, the tide of battle turned against the American Militia.  The doctor was told by the Militiamen Leader to leave the battleground to save his own life.   He refused to leave the American wounded...
   
He died as he tried to save their lives.

The doctor served in the early American Army Reserves (The Minutemen ) and would have one the first Congressional Medals of Honor, if it was started back then.  In the every least, he should be remembered...
