January 10th

On January 10, 1776, Thomas Paine's influential political pamphlet "Common Sense" was published in Philadelphia. This pamphlet, which argued for American independence from Great Britain, had a profound impact on the American Revolution and is considered one of the most important documents in American history.

Thomas Paine was an English-born political theorist who immigrated to the American colonies in 1774. He was a strong believer in the principles of liberty and democracy, and he saw the American Revolution as an opportunity to create a new and more just society.

"Common Sense" was published anonymously, but it quickly became a best-seller in the colonies. It was widely read and discussed, and it played a significant role in shaping public opinion in favor of independence.

In "Common Sense," Paine argued that it was time for the colonies to break free from British rule and establish their own independent nation. He argued that the colonies had the right to govern themselves and that they had no obligation to obey a distant and tyrannical government. Paine also argued that the colonies were economically self-sufficient and could thrive on their own without British support.

Paine's arguments were powerful and persuasive, and they helped to galvanize support for the cause of independence. "Common Sense" was widely distributed and read throughout the colonies, and it played a key role in the decision by the Continental Congress to declare independence in July 1776.

Today, "Common Sense" is considered a classic of political literature and is still widely read and studied. Its ideas about liberty, democracy, and self-governance continue to inspire people around the world.
