Happy Birthday Patrick Henry!

Happy Birthday Patrick Henry!

Happy Birthday Patrick Henry!

Yes, that’s right, one of the “Founding Fathers” of The United States of America, Patrick Henry was born on the 29th of May, 1736.

His most famous quote came out of speech given as an attendee of the Virginia Convention in March, 1775. That Quote was “Give me liberty, or give me death!” It was preceded by “Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? … Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death!”

I could go on and on about the life and times of Patrick Henry. Instead of me rehashing what others have written, here are a few links so you can read what they say.
