He is the purest son of liberty I have ever known.
Thomas Jefferson on Thaddeus Kosciuszko

 

After George Washington, there are more statues in the United States of Thaddeus Kosciuszko than any other American historical figure.

The Kosciuszko Bridge (that connects Brooklyn and Queens) is well known for traffic backups by citizens of New York City. Yet most Americans do not know who this hero was, and what his contributions did to help the American colonists win the Revolutionary War against Great Britain.

Hardly anyone can remember that this man of great empathy and a life-long advocate for human rights was one of the closest confidants to the Founding Fathers of the United States.

This is the story of Thaddeus Kosciuszko, a true American patriot.
