“Rod Bradford's film on the development of the American Freethought movement,
and Thomas Paine's seminal role, is a comprehensive, accurate, and illuminating work, masterfully told. It tells a story long overlooked, especially in academia, and the public is served well in bringing America's complete history to life.”
–Gary Berton, Thomas Paine National Historical Association
