WHAT: PRINTING PRESS

Johannes Gutenberg created the printing press in the 15th century.

Much as we use television and radio today, the printing press enabled people to communicate and learn about other colonies and the events that made changes in people's lives.

During the American Revolution, the printing press played an important role in spreading information and promoting the causes of the colonists. It was used to print such documents as Common Sense and Benjamin Franklin's Pennsylvania Gazette.
