French American Revolution
1)In a three- to ﬁve-paragraph essay, answer the following question: Which revolution, the French or the American, more completely embodied the spirit of the Enlightenment? Support your argument with historical evidence.
2)Write two letters to the editor of a newspaper in the American colonies in 1774:
One letter should be from the perspective of a male plantation owner in the Southern colonies who supports the American Revolution.
