Remembering one of America’s most influential men-Thomas Paine.
Without the pen of Paine, the sword of Washington would have been wielded in vain. –Joel Barlow, American diplomat and poet
“Common Sense” Published in 1776, Common Sense challenged the authority of the British government and the royal monarchy. The plain language that Paine used spoke to the common people of America and was the first work to openly ask for independence from Great Britain.
“Happy Independence Day, America!“
