Need help with my History question – I’m studying for my class.
based on the reading you chose , and using what you’ve learned this week about evaluating arguments, write a 2 – 3 page short essay in which you discuss the Declaration of Independence.
The essay must be at least 2 full pages, down to the bottom of the page – if in doubt, write more, onto that 3 rd page!*
Revise your rough draft per the tutoring feedback that you received.
Proofread the final version of your essay.
Submit the final, revised version of your essay in Canvas.

-Is the main premise and argument to be sound? Valid? Why or why not?
