Patrick Henry, famous hero

Patrick Henry (May 29, 1736 – June 6, 1799), the son of a silversmith, who became a hero of the American Revolution, studied law in Louisa County where he also defended clients.  One in particular, the young Michael Holland was accused of murder and when Henry gave his closing argument, it reached right into the heart of the jurors and got a "not guilty" verdict. The genealogy is traced on Virginia Pioneers and his will is also on this website in Charlotte County, where he died.
