About this title

Synopsis:

Where was Patrick Henry on the 29th of May? Languishing on a sack of salt in his country store? Speaking out against England's stamp tax on the floor of the House of Burgesses? Or being elected governor? Well, no matter where he was or what he was doing, the 29th of May was always a red-letter day for Patrick Henry!
-- "Refreshing...stresses both good and bad characteristics of Henry and throws in unusual and often humorous facts". -- School Library Journal, starred review

"A delightful addition". -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, recommended title
