Thomas Paine died in June 8, 1809.
As the video very well explains, Thomas Paine was an author, inventor, intellectual, and inventor in the late 1700's. In his pamphlet "Common Sense", Thomas showed the people how wrong the king was, and attacked their current government in general. Later, he stood up to slavery and eventually became one of the founding fathers.
Thomas Paine was born February 9, 1737, in Thetford, England.
After taking Benjamin Franklin's advice, Paine moved to Philadelphia.
In 1776, Paine wrote a pamphlet called "Common Sense". Loyalists attacked it, saying it would "degenerate America into a democracy". John Adams even called it a "crapulous mass."
Thomas Paine published a second series of pamphlets called "The Crisis" to inspire American soldiers who were fighting against the British army. George Washington even read it to his troops.
These are the times that try men's souls: The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph.
