Summary
Award-winning author Harlow Giles Unger unfolds the epic story of Patrick Henry, who roused Americans to fight government tyranny—both British and American. Remembered largely for his cry for liberty or death, Henry was actually the first (and most colorful) of America’s Founding Fathers—first to call Americans to arms against Britain, first to demand a bill of rights, and first to fight the growth of big government after the Revolution
Summary
Presents a biography of Patrick Henry, a monumental figure in American history and a fiery orator, who was the first governor of Virginia and one of the Founding Fathers of the United States
