In the finale of our series on Thomas Paine, historian and professor Harvey J Kaye tells the story of “Tom Paine’s Bones.” Kaye also explains how Thomas Paine has made an impact on many important historical figures and movements: Elizabeth Cady-Stanton and the women’s movement, Emerson, Whitman, Twain, and Eleanor Roosevelt. Paine’s writings have never been out of print and they remain relevant, resurfacing every generation and inspiring others to fight for democracy.
