Patrick Henry delivered his famous “Give me Liberty or Give me Death" speech inside the 18th-century church on March 23, 1775. Henry's timely resolutions passed by a narrow margin and the American Revolution began the following month when shots were fired at Lexington and Concord. Now a historic site, the church offers both tours and a permanent exhibit. Also, check out the free summer reenactment programs every Sunday between Memorial Day and Labor Day at 1 p.m.
