Product Description

Patrick Henry was not a particularly remarkable boy; he was always fidgeting in school and was not a natural scholar. He didn't even turn out to be a natural storekeeper or farmer either and failed at both. Even when he finally became a lawyer, he bumbled and mumbled through some of his early cases. But when the issue was freedom, Patrick Henry was transformed; and he became a natural orator who influenced and moved a nation.
Discover the man who uttered one of the most influential phrases of the American Revolution: "Give me liberty or give me death!"
