In commending this book, I offer a portion of the Afterword, which seems appropriate in current times.

It occurs to me, almost sadly, that Patrick Henry's portrait has never been featured on any of the 50+ bills of US currency featuring them, throughout our history. That should be remedied.
Thank you, Patrick Henry was a man with the right vision.
