    One of the most influential reformers of 1776 often overlooked in our history books is Thomas Paine. Paine’s pamphlet, “Common Sense,” ignited public opinion against the autocratic rule of the King of England and planted the seeds of change. His writing inspired Thomas Jefferson when he was writing the Declaration of Independence, and that John Adams once said, “Without the pen of the author of ‘Common Sense,’ the sword of Washington would have been raised in vain.”
