Chapter Three explores the parents and early family life of Charles Hodge. Hodge’s father, Hugh Hodge, was a Philadelphia physician who played an important role in the Philadelphia Yellow Fever epidemics of the 1790s. Hugh Hodge stood against Benjamin Rush’s form of treatment, but eventually succumbed to the disease himself after years of exposure. His death left his family in a poor financial state. Hodge’s mother was a beautiful, bright and determined woman, who had been born in Boston.
