Description

Thomas Paine wrote one of the most famous short documents in history when he penned COMMON SENSE and found a printer to make copies in early 1776. The effect was legend as colonists jumped on the bandwagon of independence and eventually full blown revolution. This video covers the basics of Common Sense, a bit of basic Thomas Paine background, why the pamphlet made such an impact, and the sad end of a revolutionary abandoned in his time.
