On March 6, 2012, John Batchelor played an interview that he did with Thomas Kidd, the author of a book called "Patrick Henry: First Among Patriots" that was very interesting. The interview last about 20 minutes and I've excerpted it from the show to bring it, the book and (of course) The John Batchelor Show to your attention.
Patrick Henry was one of the Founding Fathers who fought against the ratification of the US Constitution because he was concerned it gave too much authority to the federal government. A number of speeches he gave are often included in collections of the Anti-Federalist Papers.
