Henrey witnessed capital punishment for free speech

Patrick Henrey saw a group of gospel preachers publicly flogged; one of them to death because he was most outspoken against taking a license from the British crown Anglican church. His bold refusal to bow enraged the tyrants wrath so much that he was singled out to make an example of.

What the tyrants didn't know was that this martyr's blood would be taken personally by Henrey and helped fuel the, "Liberty or death", passion he plead with.

Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have the exact measure of the injustice and wrong which will be imposed on them. - Frederick Douglass
