When one thinks of colonial America, the American Revolutionary period, and the birth of this nation, many great names come to mind. Among these, of course, are Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, Alexander Hamilton, and, George Washington. Stories of America’s founding fathers and brothers abound. All of these men, and so many others were instrumental in the birth of our country. Sometimes, the legends of these men outshine the other patriots and influential members of society who also played an important role throughout these important periods. One such often overlooked giant of the time period was Patrick Henry.
