Lion of Liberty: Patrick Henry and the Call to a New Nation (Playaway Adult Nonfiction) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Known to generations of Americans for his stirring call to arms, Give me liberty or give me death, now Patrick Henry is all but forgotten as the first of the Founding Fathers to call for independence, revolution, and a bill of rights. If Washington was the Sword of the Revolution and Jefferson the Pen, Patrick Henry more than earned his epithet as the Trumpet of the Revolution for rousing Americans to arms in the Revolutionary War. Henry was one of the towering figures of the nations formative years and perhaps the greatest orator in American history. He was also one of the most important and colorful of our Founding Fathers, a driving force behind three of the most important events in American history: the War of Independence, the enactment of the Bill of Rights, and, tragically, as Americas first important proponent of states rights, the Civil War.
