Thomas Paine in Lewes and London 1768-1774

Benjamin Franklin's support was the key to Thomas Paine's success in America.

Benjamin Franklin's support was the key to Thomas Paine's success in America. The radical's incendiary pamphlet Common Sense helped unify the American colonists and galvanise support for the War of Independence. During the war, Paine's 13 Crisis Papers were similarly influential and gave America enduring phrases like "These are the Times that Try Mens Souls...." This talk by researcher Paul Myles will include rare 18th century images of Paine, Lewes, and London.
