1854 Life of Patrick Henry Colonial Americana Politics Government Speeches Law



Patrick Henry is one of the most famous early American founding fathers, most known for his declaration at the Virginia Convention of “Give me liberty, or, give me death!” William Wirt was Henrys first biographer, and in 1805, began working on the very first life of Patrick Henry. Wirt included several transcripts of Henrys speeches and was in direct correspondence with men who were closely tied to Henry. According to the DAB,

“[this] work was acquired largely from men who had known Henry and it was presented in a laudatory and ornate manner.”
