"The Word of God is the Divine Law," he wrote, adding that, in America, the Law should be King rather than the King being the Law.
In a day when the population in the 13 colonies was under 3 million, the pamphlet sold 1.5 million copies. His were just the right words to stroke the common man´s heart and inflame his nobler passions to believe in and fight for one thing: Independence.
