Overview

Most Americans know Patrick Henry as a fiery speaker whose pronouncement Give me liberty or give me death! rallied American defiance to the British Crown. But Henrys skills as an oratorsharpened in the small towns and courtrooms of colonial Virginiaare only one part of his vast, but largely forgotten, legacy. As historian Thomas S. Kidd shows, Henry cherished a vision of America as a virtuous republic with a clearly circumscribed central government. These ideals brought him into bitter conflict with other Founders and were crystallized in his vociferous opposition to the U.S. Constitution. In Patrick Henry, Kidd pulls back the curtain on one of our most radical, passionate Founders, showing that until we understand Henry himself, we will neglect many of the Revolutions animating values.
