The declaration of indepdence stated that all men are created equal. Yet there was a condraction in that there were slaves.
How did late 18th century americans reconcile this contradiction?
how would i organize this essay into 4 paragraphs exluding intro and conclusion
1. intro including thesis statement
2. attitudes of those who owned slaves
3. attitudes of those who didn't own any slaves
what are u talking about
People who did and didn't own slaves wrote the Declaration, as well as (eventually) the Constitution. You asked how "they" reconcile their beliefs about "all men are created equal" with the slavery situation at the time.
The sample outline above is one way to deal with the question.
