July 4th Revisited – Patrick Henry’s “Give Me Liberty”

I recorded this a couple of years ago and like to pull it back out for new listeners around July 4th.

On March 23, 1775, at St. John’s Henrico Parish Church in Richmond, Patrick Henry spoke to the House of Burgesses. His speech changed the minds and hearts of the Commonwealth of Virginia, and became a beacon of freedom for all of America.

Happy Independence Day, everyone.

Thank you to Nathan Lowell for his introduction at the beginning of this audio file. Be sure to check out his Golden Age of the Solar Clipper novels over at
