For this lesson you will write a two page essay on Common Sense and the Declaration of Independence. As you read these two documents remember that they were written by two men from very different backgrounds. However, both of these men respond to the events occurring in Massachusetts and long to see the rest of the American colonies become involved in the struggle for independence. Readings Both Common Sense and the Declaration of Independence can be accessed through the URL in the Web Links menu.
