On this day in history - Patrick Henry



According to Wikipedia, Patrick Henry was "one of the most influential (and radical) advocates of the American Revolution and republicanism, especially in his denunciations of corruption in government officials and his defense of historic rights." On this day, March 23, 1775, he gave his "Give me liberty or give me death" speech. The video below is a little on the long side but I enjoyed it.
