Teaching Fighters for Liberty and Freedom: Patrick Henry and Sojourner Truth

Fighters for Liberty and Freedom: Patrick Henry and Sojourner Truth

Liberty and freedom are universal values in present-day United States. But the definition and reality of these simple terms was something that earlier Americans could not take for granted. Patrick Henry and Sojourner Truth were two political actors who sought to give concrete meaning to those words. And, in so doing, they stirred their fellow Americans to take firm action in the public sphere.
