A biography of the Virginia lawyer, politician, and patriot whose great powers of speech helped inspire colonists to support the cause of American liberty at the start of the Revolutionary War. "Give me liberty, or give me death!" A passionate speaker, Patrick Henry mesmerized and motivated audiences with his powerful words.
