In the first episode of the A New York Minute in History podcast’s 2022 season, Devin Lander and Lauren Roberts look to a William G. Pomeroy Foundation historical roadside marker in Westchester County to learn about American patriot Thomas Paine, his influence on the American and French Revolutions – and just how and why his body went missing. Guests include Dr. Nora Slonimsky and Dr. Michael Crowder of the Institute for Thomas Paine Studies at Iona College.
The sign is one of hundreds reviewed by New York Almanack founder and editor John Warren in his role as a Pomeroy Foundation Grant Consultant. You can learn how to apply for your own historic sign here.
