Tom Paine: â€œWe have it in our power to begin the world over againâ€
As the 18th centuryâ€™s most influential political pamphleteer, Paineâ€™s reputation was born with the American Revolution he was largely responsible for creating, and he wanted to spend his last years among people with whom he shared a passion for liberty.
