"As the American colonies considered what they should do in the face of increased opression from the British crown, a Convention of Delegates in Virginia accelerated the momentum toward independence. One of the propelling forces was a fiery speech delivered by Patrick Henry, the climactic paragraphs of which are printed here." -- From the Publisher's Note.

A beautifully produced little book with an excerpt from Patrick Henry's great speech concluding with the sentence, "I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death!"
