Summary
"According to John Adams, 'Without the pen of the author of Common Sense, the sword of Washington would have been raised in vain.' With Common Sense, Thomas Paine energized colonial support for the armed rebellion that would make the American experiment a reality, using common sense to argue for colonial independence. Today, this cornerstone of the American Revolution has once again been rediscovered by ardent fans of the wildly popular and transformative Broadway musical Hamilton, which features Common Sense" --
