Give me Liberty, or Give me Death!

On this day in 1775 Patrick Henry gave his famed "Give me Liberty, or Give me Death!" speech before the Virginia House of Burgesses, urging action against the tyranny of the British. Its words have long been an inspiration to me, and its conclusion is something we all must ponder: Are you willing to live a slave or die free? As for me, "Give me liberty, or give me death!"

Listen to the words of Henry's famous speech and evaluate yourself.
