Pamphlets in American History
Location: Microfiche Cabinet 57
"Beginning with Tom Paine's Common Sense, which altered the course of
early U. S. history, pamphlets have played a crucial role in American history.
Pamphlet literature has been the medium through which people have expressed
their opinions and feelings on contemporary affairs." (UMI Research Collections)
