Recorded July 4, 2009, in Boston, Massachusetts: John Ridpath examines today’s Tea Party protests from a historical perspective.
This lecture was recorded as part of the ARC Lecture Series on February 12, 2004. On Presidents’ Day we honor some of the great men who contributed to the struggle to bring a free and secure America into existence, first among these being future Presidents Washington, Adams, Jefferson and Madison. Among the other founding heroes, one man stands out. This man—whom Jefferson once described as the first man on this continent—was Patrick Henry. From his first appearance on the stage of the founding drama, in 1765, to his last fiery appearance, in 1799, Patrick Henry stood as a beacon of integrity, fighting to guide the young America to safe harbor.
