Patrick Henry
  • Born May 29, 1736 in Hanover County, Virginia
  • Protested British tyranny
  • Symbol of American struggle for liberty
  • Served in the Virginia House of Burgesses and the
    Continental Congress
  • Five-term governor of Virginia
  • Delivered the famous "Give me liberty or give me
    death!" speech.
  • Died June 6, 1799 at Red Hill Plantation, Virginia

  • In March 1775, Patrick Henry urged his fellow
    Virginians to arm in self-defense, closing his
    appeal (uttered at St. John's Church in Richmond,
    where the legislature was meeting) with the
    immortal words "I know not what course others
    may take but as for me, give me liberty or give
    me death."

  • Henry's call to arms was carried over the
    protests of more conservative patriots and was
    one of the causes of the order for Lord Dunmore,
    the royal governor, to remove some gunpowder from
    the Magazine. Henry, "a Quaker in religion but
    the very devil in politics," mobilized the
    militia to force restitution of the powder. Since
    Henry's action followed the British march on
    Concord by only a few hours, it is said to mark
    the beginning of the American Revolution in
    Virginia.

    Convention. What else would Henry have to say
    to convince you to die for liberty?
