Red Hill houses the largest collection of Patrick Henry memorabilia in the world. A painting by Peter Frederick Rothermel, is the best-known piece in the Red Hill Museum and one of America's most famous historical paintings. In the painting, Patrick Henry delivers his famous "If this be treason, make the most of it!" speech, declaring his opposition to King George III's Stamp Act of 1765. A decade later, as revolutionary sentiments surged in America, Henry declared "Give me liberty or give me death!" to the Virginia Convention gathered at St. John's Episcopal Church in Richmond, Virginia.
