Origins[edit | edit source]

Patrick Henry was a lawyer and politician who became one of America’s founding fathers. He led opposition to the greatly hated Stamp Act and wrote the speech containing “Give me liberty, or give me death!”. Along with Samuel Adams and Thomas Paine, he was one of the most fervent supporters of the American Revolution. After the war, he opposed the Constitution, fearing the limits it might set on states and individuals rights; he, along with many Anti-Federalists, eventually compromised with the inclusion of a Bill of Rights.

Effects[edit | edit source]

When (harmlessly) stabbed into the heart of a person, they become filled with patriotism and will fight to their best ability, both in combat and politics to ensure their country is not oppressed or controlled.
