Give me Liberty: On the 20th of March, 1775, the Second Virginia Convention met in Richmond, VA. Most everyone there, including the convention president, felt that it would be unwise to raise a militia in defense against the crown. Patrick Henry thought otherwize and suggested to raise a volunteer company of cavalry or infantry. While noone who was present at the time wrote it down, not a soul forgot his declamation or his final words, “Give me Liberty, or Give Me Death!” This impact of this speech is still prevalent today, teaching us that one should never be afraid to speak up for what they believe is right, even when everyone else isn’t.
