Thomas Paine

Author Code: ATPX

Born: Jan. 29, 1737 - Thetford, Norfolk, England

Died: Jun. 8, 1809 - New York City, New York, USA

Emigrated to Philadelphia in 1774 and edited the Pennsylvania Magazine. He published his pamphlet, Common Sense, on January 1, 1776 in which he called for the colonies to become independent. During the revolution, Paine wrote a series of pamphlets, The American Crisis, the first of which opened with the now-famous lines "These are the times that try men's souls". He was appointed secretary of the committee of foreign affairs in 1778 by Congress. After the war, he was awarded a confiscated Loyalist farm in New Rochelle, NY as compensation for his expenses.

He returned to Britain in 1787 and published The Rights Of Man in 1791-92. The British government charged Paine with treason and he fled to France where he was elected a deputy to the National Convention. He was subsequently imprisoned by Robespierre for 11 months for favouring the exile of Louis rather than execution. He published The Age Of Reason in 1792. He returned to America in 1802 on a ship placed at his disposal by President Thomas Jefferson.
