Notes for Patrick Henry:

During Patrick Henry's first term as governor of Virginia he sent the American
soldier and frontiersman George Rogers Clark on a military expedition into the largely unexplored 'Northwest' territory. In 1788 as a delegate to the Virginia convention for the ratification of the U. S. Constitution, he opposed the document on the ground that it threatened the rights of states and individuals. It was largely through his efforts that the provisions known as the 'Bill of Rights' were adopted as the First Ten Amendments to the Constitution. He was offered many governmental posts, but declined them, continuing his law practice. In 1799 he was elected to the Virginia legislature, but he died on June 6 of that year before taking his seat.
