Patrick Henry, Son Of A Scotsman


Taken from The Scot In America:

"Patrick Henry of Virginia, son of a Scotsman, struck the keynote of revolution and independence when he loudly and boldly proclaimed that " Resistance to Tyrants is Obedience to God," and he more than any other led the way to national independence. The fires of patriotism burned brightest and with the most enduring flame where the fugitive rebels of 1745 had found new homes, and the history of the revolutionary period, and its muster rolls, teem with names of Scots who became the patriots, statesmen, and heroes of the new-born nation."
