Declaration of Independence and Sentiments and Resolutions
You have two tasks.
1) Identify then describe one distinctive syntactic feature found in the Declaration of Independence. Once you identify this feature, explain the effect it may have created on the audience during the time just before the Revolutionary War. Why do you think Jefferson crafted this argument in this way? Did he achieve his purpose?
2) Elizabeth Cady Stanton’s Sentiments and Resolutions resembles the Declaration of Independence. Why specifically, do you think she chose to mimic Jefferson’s document? What is the significance of her doing so and how does this help to acheive her purpose?
Cite concrete details from both documents in your response. This is due by Friday morning. 🙂
