Part newsfeed, part op-ed, these pieces were widely circulated in the States and in Britain during the war. They reported on the progress of the war, argued for the reasons for the war, made recommendations on the conduct of the war, and taught citizens of a new country just what their obligations and duties were in support of their new country.

    "Too much Common sense"

    After listening to this for an hour; you're ready for some stupidity. History is dealt out in the form of letters to King George or his Generals. Pointing out their failings and ignorance. However a little of this venue goes a long way and is soon boring. Common Sense was originally dealt out in small portions in the form of a pamphlet and was quite popular for it's wisdom and wit.
