Reprinted with special care for all American History students and History lovers, Thomas Paineâ??s Common Sense is one of the most important pamphlets ever published in American history. Common Sense inspired people in the Thirteen Colonies to declare and fight for independence from Great Britain in 1776. The clear and simple language used by Paine to explain the advantages of and the need for immediate independence are still just as inspiring as they were over 200 years ago.

Common Sense was published anonymously on January 10, 1776 and was sold and distributed widely around the colonies. George Washington had it read aloud to all his troops, which at the time had surrounded the British army in Boston. In proportion to the population of the colonies in 1776, it had the largest sale and circulation of any book ever published in American history. Paine, a brilliant man, structured Common Sense as if it were a sermon and reasoned in a style that common people understood.

References to todayâ??s political atmosphere can certainly be compared to the writing of Paine in Common Sense. For those who have history buffs in their lives, this pamphlet is a must-own, as it shaped the future of America during the Revolutionary era.
