Patrick Henry, a symbol of America's struggle for liberty and self-government, was a lawyer, patriot, orator, and willing participant in virtually every aspect of the founding of America. He was the chief advocate for Virginia declaring independence from England. Serving in public office for nearly 30 years, Henry was a five-term governor under the new constitution of the commonwealth. The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation's official historic interpreter, Richard Schumann, will bring the fiery Henry to life on the Gilcrease stage. He will discuss his role in the founding of our nation from the Stamp Act to ratification of the Constitution.
