DVD Inset: Portrait of Thomas Paine circa 1791 by Laurent Dabos

Common Sense articulated the argument for seeking independence from Britain when the matter was the issue of the day. Reasoned and written in a clear, simple style, Paine structured Common Sense as a sermon using Biblical references to make his case, drawing together the drive for independence with prevailing dissenting Protestant tenets to forge a uniquely American political identity. Published anonymously on January 10, 1776, it became an instant sensation. Its sales in proportion to the overall population remain the highest of any book published in American history.
