Who said give me liberty or give me death
"Give me liberty or give me death"
Were the words of the young Patrick Henry, who after much discussion
with his assembly colleagues considered that their speech against the
oppressor was futile and useless. When the young patriot felt that these
men, proposed to take the path of peace and not the struggle for
freedom, he said at the meeting of the Convention of 1775: "Peace, peace!"
But peace no longer exists. The war has already begun. Our breaths are
already on the battlefield! Why do we remain, then, inactive? What do men
want? What do you want? Is life so precious, or peace so sweet, to be bought
at the price of chains and slavery? I do not know the course that others
have to take? But as far as I am concerned: give me liberty or give me
Words that inspired the beginning of the American Revolution and the
libertarian movements of America entire. In a few days began the English
repression. The war for independence of the American colonies began by
sowing the sacrificial furrow with many patriotic lives.
