Thomas Paine

Who was Thomas Paine?
"It's 200 years since the British-born "father
of the American revolution" died...
Paine threw his lot in with those Americans who were thirsting for
independence from Britain. In January 1776 he published a short pamphlet
that earned him the title The Father of the American Revolution.

Titled simply, Common Sense, the work has been described ... as "the most incendiary and popular pamphlet of the entire [American] revolutionary
period". It put the case for democracy, against the monarchy,
and for American independence from British rule."

(BBC)

Thomas Paine (1737 – 1809)
"was an English-American pamphleteer, revolutionary, radical, inventor, intellectual, and one of the Founding Fathers of the United States."
