Rhetorical strategies are a necessity for persuasion. Patrick Henry demonstrates this notion in his speech to the Virginia Convention. Henry’s rhetorical strategies of rhetorical questioning and refuting opposing arguments supports his argument that America must go to war with Britain. One of Henry’s main assertions is that the British are already preparing for war with the colonies. By asking the delegates of the Virginia Convention if “fleets and armies” are “necessary to a work of love and reconciliation,” Henry questions the British’s motives (Henry).
The "Give Me Liberty Or Give Me Death" speech, was delivered by Patrick Henry at the third Virginia convention, held in St. John's Church in Richmond on March 23, 1775. Patrick's goal was to get the colonists to take arms against the British, but of course, no revolution starts with just asking. He wanted to motivate everyone in the church by presenting his speech in a very urgent and motivational manner. As a result of this speech, a majority of the delegates joined him in his plight for fighting against Britain. His opening line is strong, "No man thinks more highly than I do of the patriotism.

This is a very power way of showing that you are trying to help and you are on there same side.
Patrick Henry and John F. Kennedy were similar when discussing the value of freedom. Patrick Henry was speaking to a group of representatives to persuade them to not go back to Britain's rule. Henry stated, “... give me liberty, give me death” (85). He was convincing people to fight for their freedom. In a like manner, John F. Kennedy was presenting his Inaugural Address to people of the United States.
Leaders, especially in war, must have the courage to take the first step into battle. You can’t be a good leader and tell another person to take the first step before you do. A good leader must prove themselves to the people they command; if you don’t prove yourself you won’t be trusted nor, will you be respected by the people that you’re supposed to lead. Captain Miller proves himself as a good leader throughout this movie. Throughout the movie you see Captain Miller in the frontlines with the other men, whether it’s storming the beach or sneaking through enemy territory, he isn’t sitting in the back-lines commanding men he is instead there leading by example.
His repetitive questions engage his audience with his words, forcing them to recall each failed attempt at peace. He says they "have held the subject in every light... but it has been all in vain." To further prolong the colonists' failed methods, Henry uses an anaphora that lists each failure and blatantly shows the obviousness of the situation and the desperation that should be felt. He stress how "there is no longer room for hope" which brings together the claim Henry makes that many want to stay away from: to fight. "We must fight!"

War is beautiful. War is necessary. We must fight because we are right, and the enemy is wrong. When raised in a nation that is free, these three statements will be echoed until it is time to be shipped off to battle. There is no argument or resistance, only a generation of young men that believe their right is not to be free, but to die in hopes that their sacrifice will bring freedom to those they love.
He asked his listeners if the nation was to become endangered, would it sprout from overseas or from within the nation. He was referring to the mobs and others going against the laws of the nation. In the Lyceum Address, Lincoln went on to say that if danger “ever reach us it must spring up amongst us,” and that “we must ourselves be its author and finisher”.
