liberty or death

Review :

Henry the traditionalist

Henry's stirring and famous appeal to the house of burgesses is notable not only for it's magnificent rhetoric but also for Henry's conception of American liberty. Henry and the Virginians seem uninterested in creating a new order. They display a willingness to fight for the rights they inherited from the English constitution. In this way American revolution was a fight for tradition, and in many ways was barely a revolution at all.
