One of the most famous lines in American history was spoken during its earliest days before the American Revolution. Patrick Henry, a lawyer and politician in the Continental Congress, delivered an impassioned speech that ended with the famous words, “Give me liberty or give me death!” This speech was delivered in St. John’s Church in Richmond, VA, and the church is a regular stop during Virginia guided tours. Let’s take a closer look at the importance of Patrick Henry’s famous speech.
The American Colonies were on the cusp of war with the British Empire, and it was Patrick Henry’s famous words that gave the American militia the rally cry it needed. Americans today can use these words as a constant reminder that the United States of America was built upon the concept of freedom for everyone.
