The decade of the 1790s was for Patrick Henry his golden years. During this period, Henry crowned his brilliant legal career with magnificent oratory in the British Debts case and was accorded some of the highest public accolades and attention bestowed upon any U.S. citizen of his time.
Patrick Henry: The Last Years 1789–1799 is a superbly researched and well-documented account of a little known yet important time in the life of one of the most influential American patriots and statesmen that ever lived. Henry’s public and private lives are examined in the context of a critical time in United States history.
Enjoy the post-Revolution, final journey of Patrick Henry, a Virginian who rang the bell of freedom throughout the colonies when he declared, “Give me liberty, or give me death!”
