This is a 16 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on the American Revolutionary War - Key Figures - Patrick Henry. Each of the slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
Patrick Henry was an American attorney, planter and politician who became known as an orator during the American Revolution. He is best known for his quote "Give me liberty or give me death.” Henry was an influential leader in the radical opposition to the British government, but only accepted the new federal government after the passage of the Bill of Rights, for which he was in great measure responsible. A Founding Father, he served as the 1st and 6th post-colonial Governor of VA, from 1776 to 1779 and from 1784 to 1786.
While he never held national office, Patrick Henry is remembered as one of the great revolutionary leaders. He has been called the "Trumpet" and "Voice" of the American Revolution. His powerful speeches served as a call for rebellion, and his political proposals offered suggestions for a new nation.
