The Duke felt that a declaration wasn't clear to many,and felt that the people of France needed to be educated with a written declaration. Marquis De Lafayette believed that ideas must be fixed upon a declaration containing the first principles of any constitution it may be.

    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.
