  1. Review title Liberty or death reclaiming the hero of the founding generationPatrick Henry is best known for perhaps the most quotable slogan of the American Revolution, but is generally overlooked as a founding father, and sometimes is mentally lumped in with Common Sense s Thomas Paine as a minor character of the early days of the revolution Kukla s powerful biography reclaims Henry s reputation and rightful place at the forefront of the founding generation Patrick Henry comes alive as the hero [...]


  2. This biography is nothing if not thorough If you are looking for casual read with basic information about Patrick Henry this is not it As a person who has lived in different parts of Virginia I was thrilled to read names of places, creeks, and communities that I was familiar with You will not fly through this book because it is a very heavy read, but you will come out on the other side with a very in depth knowledge of Patrick Henry This should probably not be your first book on Henry, but if yo [...]


  3. This book could also be called A Truer History of Early American Government with special attention to Patrick Henry s life and part in it.One of the reasons for this is, unfortunately, most of the information we have about Patrick Henry has been burned or lost Despite this, Kukla has a very thorough index and bibliography that makes this work an excellent resource Kukla makes every effort to fill in all the gaps with other data that is available to provide context and continuity as well as encou [...]



  4. This comprehensive biography reminds us that there was much to Patrick Henry than Give me liberty or give me death, though the detailed description of the speech and its context is a highlight of the book.The author, Jon Kukla, shows us that Patrick Henry is an example of a public leader s works being shaped by values formed at a young age Henry s Christian faith began early but it was a faith that rejected the both the then prevailing Anglican church as too closely tied to the corrupt governme [...]


  5. If Patrick Henry were alive today, and running for office, he would be a candidate who would talk a lot about how he was in tune with and appreciative of the little people, the common man, and he would actually mean it at least he would in terms of white people, but about that later It was his work helping ordinary citizens in their fight for equality before the American Revolutionary War that is most interesting about this book Also absorbing is his early life and all of the struggles through [...]


  6. Authoritative and comprehensive but unfortunately rather dull I appreciate that it s an important examination of a man who has been overshadowed by his well known peers, but this is probably a book for the academic or serious historian than the general reader I learnt a lot but the journey was slow going and tedious at times.


  7. Never get enough of our founding fathers particularly those who don t get as much credit as others Much bigger contribution to our founding than just his liberty or death speech.


  8. What a treat for this product of Virginia elementary and high schools to finally get a good biography of Patrick Henry Kukla s research in the key areas of Henry s life is impressive.
