Dr. Bell’s lecture on Thomas Paine ranks in my “Best Ever” category. (1) He’s a smooth, well paced and enthusiastic presenter. (2) His research is thorough. (3) His presentation is organized and builds seamlessly to reveal the many components of Paine’s personality and and the depth and breadth of his intellect. (4) Dr. Bell’s graphics are attractive and on point. (5) He provides additional sources of reference for his audience. (I ordered three books.) I look forward to more lectures by Dr. Bell.
As usual, Richard Bell delivered a wonderful talk on an iconic "name" that I connected with the American Revolution but I really knew very little about Tom Paine,Now I do know just enough to make me even more curious about this American hero!

Richard Bell is one of our favorite historians. We've learned a lot from the many online lectures we've attended.
