Patrick Henry’s “Give Me Liberty or Give me Death”, 1775

We have included an excerpt along with questions and answers from his passionate speech given on the eve of the revolutionary war.

It is short and well-suited for use as a primary source since the language is easily understandable.  This can help students feel good about reading a “real speech”.

For more on this era check out our Colonial Era, Revolutionary War, and Early US History Review PowerPoints and our classroom ready simulation games:
