Funeral
==Later life==
Paine remained in France until 1802 when he returned to America on an invitation from [[Thomas Jefferson]]. Paine discovered that his contributions to the American Revolution had been all but eradicated due to his religious views. Derided by the public and abandoned by his friends, he died on June 8, 1809 at the age of 72 in New York City.<ref>[http://www.ushistory.org/paine/ Thomas Paine.]</ref> Once a celebrated figure, his funeral was only attended by six people.<ref>[https://books.google.com/books?id=ybpbAgAAQBAJ&pg=PT58 Thomas Paine: Political Activist and Author]</ref>
