  1. I suggest you start by taking notes on each section of this prompt. Then make an outline of how you want to organize this paper.

    Perhaps your character should be a male since women are not mentioned in the Declaration, Articles, or Constitution.

    Of course, the first item that comes to mind is the line in the Declaration: ". . . all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."

    I hope you enjoy using your imagination as well as your research skills in preparing this paper.

    Please post again if you need further help.

  4. Yes, you definitely need the philosophical ideals in the Declaration of Independence. The statement I copied above should start you off -- and you can go from there to see the details spelled out in this document.

  8. The similarities and differences of the philosophies in the Articles of
    Confederation and the Constitution and how each of them affects your assigned role? How do this sound?

    1. Articles of Confederation didn’t give the federal government power to tax or levy troops.
    2. Articles of Confederation contains a preamble
    3. Constitution created the three branches of government – Judicial, Legislative, and Executive
    4. Articles of Confederation only granted each state one vote each.
    5. Constitution had a bicameral congress with 2 senate votes each and a house vote that depends on population.
    6. Articles of Confederation provided a central government, which proved to be unsuccessful.
    7. Articles of Confederation gave the states a lot of power, almost too much.
    8. Constitution provided a stronger central government which ultimately made the government more powerful.
    9. The Constitution is the highest law that governs the federation of the United States, and spells out the repective rights and powers of the federal government.
    10. Articles of Confederation allowed each state to coin it’s own money.
    11. Article of Confederation defines actions of the Congress
    12. Article of Confederation appoints Delegates to the Congress for each state.

    Here some what I added.
    The Articles were a meaningless set of "laws" promulgated by traitors who had no legal authority to act on behalf of the colonies or the colonials who were, at the time, British subjects. After independence was granted by the British in 1783, the Articles were never ratified. Luckily, the Articles were not intended to create a single nation so the invalidity of them was of little consequence.

    The Constitution, on the other hand, was a valid compact acceded to by the people of the 13 nations who confederated under them. Unlike the Articles, the constitution was put to "We the People" for approval. The Articles couldn't be, since only 1/3 of the colonists favored independence and voting for a treasonous document may have constituted an act of treason.

  9. You have a lot of similarities and differences.

    However, you did not tell how each of these would affect you as a slave.
