Patrick Henry died in June 1799 at the age of 63. His death has gone down in history as one of the most famous, and the most unusual, of the Founding Fathers. But what was death like in 18th century America? Were funerary practices like todays? Where is Henry really buried?

Join Cody Youngblood, Director of Historic Preservation & Collections, as he answers the questions about Henry’s death, and what dying in the 18th century meant to Colonial Americans.
