On this day, Feb. 14, 1776, the immigran

On this day, Feb. 14, 1776, the immigrant author of Common Sense reprints this bestseller anonymously. He conceals his identity once again because he knows he doesn’t have freedom of speech in the American colonies. He writes: “Who the author of this production is, is wholly unnecessary to the public, as the object for attention is the doctrine itself, not the man. Yet it may not be unnecessary to say, That he is unconnected with any party, and under no sort of Influence public or private, but the influence of reason and principle.” Who was he? http://www.revolution240.com http://ow.ly/i/ejm3o
