Book Synopsis
The American Crisis is a powerful pamphlet series written by one of America's least appreciated founding fathers, Thomas Paine. Paine originally wrote and published the pamphlets between 1776 to 1783.

George Washington was so moved by Paine's words that he ordered his officers to read the December 1776 issue to the entire Continental Army prior to going into battle, before he crossed the Delaware on his way to victory at Trenton, New Jersey.

Paine's first pamphlet began with the immortal line "THESE are the times that try men's souls."

Overall, the pamphlets bolstered the morale of the colonies and the Continental Congress while starkly illustrating to the English people the Crown's abuse of power in the Americas. As a consequence of Paine's writings and the colonies' resolve, England finally gave up its efforts to quell their break for independence, and the colonies emerged victorious as the United States of America.
