Virginia Legends Walk
PATRICK HENRY
1736-1799
Hanover County

Henry was a living symbol of America's struggle for liberty and self-government from British rule. His immortal appeal was, "I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death." He was the first Virginia governor under its new constitution, serving three terms.
