Post 33- Patrick Henry

213 years ago Patrick Henry died. He was one of many politicians that influenced and fought for Americas independence. He believed in taxation without representations and was a very strong republican. He wanted freedom and he wanted it badly. He has a famous speech that will be remembered in history forever. He helped our freedom be by what he said. He inspired so many people with this speech to go fight against the Stamp Act of 1765. I wish he was alive again because now (lots of people don't know or realize this) but we have the same problem here in America. Do we really know where our taxes are going? He has inspired me to fight for freedom just like he did for others 200 years ago. There was something in that speech that inspired people the most. Those words made it so clear how much he wanted independence and today that is the quote of the day from Patrick Henry.

"Give me Liberty, or give me Death!" -Patrick Henry
