Thomas Paine’s Common Sense about indep

Thomas Paine’s Common Sense about independence will soon give way to a declaration. In June 1776 the youthful Thomas Jefferson and other Virginia delegates arrive in Philadelphia for the Continental Congress. “Writings of his [Jefferson’s] were handed about, remarkable for the peculiar felicity of expression,” John Adams later recounts. “Though a silent member in Congress, Jefferson was so prompt, frank, explicit, and decisive upon committees and in conversation . . . that he soon seized upon my heart.” Jefferson brings “a reputation for literature, science, and a happy talent for composition.” http://www.revolution240.com #TBT Throwback Thursday #LovingAmerica http://ow.ly/i/eoFZY
