Read the American Declaration of Independence. Before you read the Declaration, please read the Sample Historical Document Analysis, if you have not already done so. Answer the following question in a paragraph:
Citing specific evidence from the American Declaration of Independence, how was the American Declaration of Independence a product of Enlightenment thought?
Your paragraph should be about one-half page in length, double-spaced with one-inch margins, font size 10 or 12; it should contain a concise topic sentence (sentence 1) that directly responds to the assigned question (no need to define terms or cite a dictionary), and you should use direct, quoted material to support your points. Your last sentence should be a conclusion.
