He served as a surgeon in the Continental Army, and with James Pemberton founded the first antislavery society in America. As a member of the Continental Congress, Rush was a signer of the Declaration of Independence, and in 1787 he was a member of the Pennsylvania convention that adopted the Federal Constitution.
