The prestigious DAR History Award was presented to Ian Ruskin, who stars in the one-man play and 2016 film documentary “To Begin the World Over Again: The Life of Thomas Paine” about the man whose pamphlet “Common Sense” helped convince early Americans to revolt against the British monarchy and create a new nation.
