I found that Montesquieu and Locke both influenced Jefferson in writing the Declaration. I know how Locke influenced him, but not Montesquieu. I can't seem to find information on that.. can someone tell me where I can find a short summary?
All I need is enough info to answer a question in 1 sentence.
try this site

Actually I found a lot more on Montesquieu than John Locke!
Thanks to all for the help. I guess I was looking in the wrong places :)
You're very welcome. I found the site I posted by searching Google for Montesquieu Jefferson.
