Compose an essay of at least 2000 words but no more than 3000 words (not including your references list) in which you discuss in depth the following questions:
(1) What is the meaning of œmen in the phrase œall men are created equal in the Declaration of Independence? What are your reasons for this interpretation?
(2) Since Jefferson was heavily influenced by Locke in writing the Declaration of Independence, why did he replace Locke’s term œProperty with œthe Pursuit of Happiness in the phrase œLife, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness?
(3) What is the political and intellectual relationship between the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution?
Be sure to synthesize ideas from each as many of the Weeks 1-3 readings as possible. You may also bring in up to four additional sources you have found in your own research.
Employ APA format for both in-text citations and your references list. Abstracts and running heads are not required. Use the Major Essay Grading Rubric for guidance on how to write this paper successfully and well.
