Va. Unveils Trail Interpreting Patrick Henry's Life

April 26, 2010

A new heritage trail in Virginia gives visitors a glimpse of the life of Patrick Henry.

Gov. Bob McDonnell and other officials unveiled The Road to Revolution Heritage Trail on Sunday. It starts at the Episcopal church in Richmond where Henry gave his "Give me liberty or give me death" speech to the Second Virginia Convention in 1775.

Markers along the trail highlight 10 sites, including Hanover Courthouse where he began his public career and his grave at Red Hill Plantation in Brookneal.
