Members of Preston Trail Chapter NSDAR participated in a Constitution Week Celebration Luncheon at the Ridglea Country Club in Fort Worth Texas on September 21st . In attendance was Lisa Lettie, Regent and Gloria Morton, Vice Regent.

The program was presented by Dr. Gary Sisson as he portrayed Patrick Henry and his famous speech to the Second Virginia Convention on March 23rd 1775.

On the 23rd, Henry presented a proposal to organize a volunteer company of cavalry or infantry in every Virginia county. By custom, Henry addressed himself to the Convention's president, Peyton Randolph of Williamsburg. Henry's words were not transcribed, but no one who heard them forgot their eloquence.
When the Second Virginia Convention convened, it did so upriver from the capital, since many of the delegates feared the royal governor, Lord Dunmore, might try to break up the proceedings. Richmond was at the time only a village, with no government building large enough to accommodate the convention, so the delegates assembled at Henrico Parish Church, later named St. John's Church.
"Gentlemen may cry, Peace, Peace-- but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!" Patrick Henry
