Step 1 : Introduction to the question "At which event did Patrick Henry deliver his “give me liberty, or give me death” speech on this day in 1775?"
...Give me liberty, or give me death!" is a quotation attributed to Patrick Henry from a speech he made to the Second Virginia Convention on March 23, 1775, at St. John's Church in Richmond, Virginia. Patrick Henry afforded and addressed the opposition with due respect. In his speech he emphasizes his view that there is a need to fight for truth and God's purpose. His "Give me Liberty or give me Death!" speech is based on his belief that the alternative to fighting is slavery (meaning British rule).
Step 2 : Answer to the question "At which event did Patrick Henry deliver his “give me liberty, or give me death” speech on this day in 1775?"
The Virginia Conventions were a series of five meetings that were held in which representatives from the colonies gathered to decide the future relations between the colonies and England. The second convention met in Richmond, Virginia, for a one-week period in 1775. At the convention, Patrick Henry initiated a program for defensive action and presented his celebrated "Give me liberty or give me death" speech, which inspired the colonists to follow the cause. It was on this day in 1775, Henry declared, “I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!”
