Your debts are paid cuz you don’t pay for labor5)Corroboration: What other types of documents would you have to consult to verify if this song is accurate in explaining the debate between Hamilton and Jefferson over the proposed National Bank? Would have to find multiple secondary sources or some primary source Corroboration: Read the excerpts of the two sources below, and answer the analysis questions thatfollow. Source #1: Jefferson's Opinion on the Constitutionality of the National Bank (1791) ...I consider the foundation of the Constitution as laid on this ground in the tenth amendment: That "all powers not delegated to the United States, by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States or to the people."
