More information about Final Jeopardy:
This March 23, 1775 speech was made by Patrick Henry to the Second Virginia Convention and its much more famous quote was its closing words: “Give me liberty or give me death!”
The “our chains are forged” quote is in reference to the fact that Henry thought that war with British was “inevitable” and it was “too late to retire from the contest”.
