Prompt: In January 1776 Thomas Paine wrote a political pamphlet called Common Sense. In this pamphlet he made a variety of arguments (political, economic, religious, and emotional), to educate British colonial citizens on the reasons for separation from Great Britain. In a research essay, explain the main points of Common Sense by Thomas Paine and use specific colonial examples that support Paine’s argument for separation. Address how this impacted the Continental Congress. Discuss whom at the time opposed Paine’s thinking and why. Give supportive evidence of your take on the events using outside primary and secondary sources (no fewer than 5 outside sources. This means not counting Common Sense and not counting your text book).
