The American Revolution began with the first exchange of fire between British and American forces at Lexington on April 19. Tensions building between the colonists and the British authorities had finally boiled over. “Give me liberty or give me death!” is the now famous line often attributed to Patrick Henry and his 1775 speech. But what about the Founding Fathers and patriots who truly did risk their lives for that freedom we hold so near and dear to our hearts? Join us as we hear their rousing stories of victory, tragedy, and revolution from their final places of rest here at Laurel Hill.
