Evaluate the impact of the American Revolution that showed continuity and change over time to ideas about inequality. Doc 1(Common Sense by Thomas Paine) Highlighted-”She did not protect us from our enemies on our account but from her enemies on her own account.” “A government of our own is our natural right.” “In America law is king.” “Europe regards her like a stranger, and England hath given her warning to depart, receive the fugitive, and prepare in time an asylum for mankind.” Sentence-Thomas Paine, a British Whig, wrote a document called “Common Sense” at the request of members of the Second Continental Congress. “Common Sense” was written to persuade moderates and loyalists to agree with the Declaration of Independence which indicates that in their free country law is their king. He goes on to say they won’t get protection from British to defeat their enemies because Britain was focused on protecting themselves. Doc 2(What is an American? By Crevecoeur) Highlighted-”Everything has tended to regenerate them; new laws, a new mode of living, a new social system; here they are become men: in Europe they were so many useless plants, wanting vegetative mould, and refreshing showers; they withered, and were mowed down by want, hunger, and war; but now by the power of transplantation, like all other plants they have taken root and flourished!” “What then is the American, this new man? He is either an European, or a descendant of an European, hence that strange mixture of blood, which you will find in no other country.” “American is a new man, who acts upon new principles; he must therefore entertain new ideas, and form new opinions.” Sentence-Crevecoeur, a Frenchmen who came to America, described the differences between his homeland and America in terms of diversity, social rank and how people came to America for more opportunities. He describes the treatment of the poor, before the Jamestown settlement in 1607, being the main reason for the revolution. Doc 3(Pennsylvania-An Act for the Gradual Abolition of Slavery)

Highlighted- “ Whereas the condition of those persons who have heretofore been denominated Negro and Mulatto flaves, has been attended with circumstances which not only deprived them of the common blessings that they were by nature entitled to but has cast them into the deepest afflictions.” “Passing of this act as aforesaid, shall be, and hereby is utterly taken away, extinguished and forever abolished.” Sentence-Pennsylvania, founded by William Penn, was created as a refuge for Quakers because they believed that slavery should be abolished and people born equal. The Pennsylvania Act for the Gradual Abolition of Slavery, 1780, described slaves who have been deprived of their natural rights, which was described by John Locke during the Enlightenment, as one of the reasons to abolish slavery.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
