Item description for The American Crisis by Thomas Paine...

This description of this very important book to the American Revolution, especially to the troops at Valley Forge, is best said by these famous words of Thomas Paine: "These are the times that try mens's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the services of their country, but he that stands now, desrves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered, yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the truimph. What we attain to cheap, we esteem to lightly; it is this dearness only that gives everything it's value". Many men at Valley Forge read this book and decided to fight rather than leave the service of the Revolution even tho their enlistments were up very soon. It can be said, that if Thomas Paine had not written this book at the time he did - The Revolution would have been lost! American's 'today' need to know what our forefathers did while suffering everything - from the weather, the lack of food, bad medical condition, no boots and winter clothes and superiority of the English military in numbers and weapons in order to establish the United States of America. The American patriots had 100 times the motivation of the English as they fought for freedom and liberty. Not many American's today know that 40,000 of our brethern died in the fields of battle to give us what we have today! The 4th of July is not only Independence Day but Patriots Day. Thomas Paine is one of the greatest heros of the Revolution and the Revolution did not come easy! All Power To The People! A Collector's Edition.

More About Thomas Paine

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Thomas Paine was born in Thetford, England, in 1737, the son of a staymaker. He had little schooling and worked at a number of jobs, including tax collector, a position he lost for agitating for an increase in excisemen's pay. Persuaded by Benjamin Franklin, he emigrated to America in 1774. In 1776 he began his American Crisis series of thirteen pamphlets, and also published the incalculably influential Common Sense, which established Paine not only as a truly revolutionary thinker, but as the American Revolution's fiercest political theorist. In 1787 Paine returned to Europe, where he became involved in revolutionary politics. In England his books were burned by the public hangman. Escaping to France, Paine took part in drafting the French constitution and voted against the king's execution. He was imprisoned for a year and narrowly missed execution himself. In 1802 he returned to America and lived in New York State, poor, ill and largely despised for his extremism and so-called atheism (he was in fact a deist). Thomas Paine died in 1809. His body was exhumed by William Cobbett, and the remains were taken to England for a memorial burial. Unfortunately, the remains were subsequently lost.

Thomas Paine was born in 1737 and died in 1809.
