Deliberate with Patrick Henry on the question of “freedom of religion” in the founding of our new nation. Much of Patrick Henry’s rhetorical style was learned from the dissenting preachers he listened to in his youth. Listen as he discusses his views on religion in the post-Revolutionary years and learn why he believes a formal relationship between the government of the Commonwealth and the teachers of the various denominations of Christian faith is necessary. Suggested for students aged 8-14.
Students under 18 must be accompanied by an adult with a Homeschool Admission Ticket and a Special Program Ticket.
