|Personal Fact of Patrick Henry|
Patrick Henry, one of the Founding Fathers of the United States of America, was a great orator, a successful lawyer, respected statesman and a planter. He began his career as a lawyer and made his name while appearing in the Parson’s Cause trial in early 1760s. Within two years, he was elected to the House of Burgesses, where he successfully steered the Virginia Stamp Act Resolutions. Soon, he became known for his radical opposition to the British governance.
That he could communicate his political ideologies in a language that the common people could understand earned him great distinction. However, he is best remembered for the speech he gave at the Virginia Convention, where he urged his fellow delegates to join the war of independence in strong but passionate terms.
Later, he was appointed a colonel of the 1st Virginia Regiment and then the first post colonial Governor of Virginia. Initially he opposed the United States Constitution because he believed that the rights of the States as well as the freedom of individuals were not addressed in it, but later supported President John Adams and became instrumental in the adoption of the Bill of Rights.
