I’ve started a new series of posts on Thomas Paine on the Bauman Rare Books blog. You can read my earlier Forgotten Founders posts on George Mason (Parts 1 and 2) and John Dickinson (Parts 1, 2, and 3) here.
I’ll add links as each post goes live:
- Forgotten Founders: Thomas Paine, Part 1 (about the controversy over whether Paine deserves to be called a Founding Father)
- Forgotten Founders: Thomas Paine, Part 2 (about Common Sense)
- Forgotten Founders: Thomas Paine, Part 3 (about The American Crisis)
“We have it in our power to begin the world over again.”
–Thomas Paine, Common Sense
