18th century America is experiencing encompassing changes. Dr. Elisha Dick enters into Alexandria and becomes noted for his medical skills and critical civic positions. He is involved in many issues that have both local and national impact. Dr. Dick is summoned when George Washington is dying. Dr. Dick recommends a critical procedure that could have saved his life. Washington's death has a profound impact. Stopping time is a part of it.
The 18th century had many men of importance, but there was one man, Dr. Elisha Cullen Dick, who impacted the Alexandria community like few others, both as a physician and civic leader. Dr. Dick used his keen intellect, strong work ethics, and devoted patriotism to pursue the greater good. He held positions of trust that were as varied and comprehensive as the man. His diverse interests, highly regarded medical skills, and overall knowledge made him in demand for many prestigious positions. Some were taken in the face of adversity such as combating yellow fever, commanding a cavalry unit in the Whiskey Rebellion, and negotiating terms for Alexandria in the War of 1812. Despite the number of impressive positions Dr. Dick held, none was as valuable as his friendship and medical relationship with General Washington. It was in this capacity during the final treatment of the General that time became the element that he was able to stop. Yet this doctor and respected Alexandrian who achieved and did so much for the community, was buried in an unmarked grave and remains relatively unknown. This is the true story of the man and how his actions impacted time
