Your task is to write an analytical essay between 650 to 850 words that provides a strong historical context for understanding the documents, a summary of each document as well as an understanding of the document(s) historical significance.
In addition, you MUST provide me with an explanation of how these two documents relate to one another and connect them to a larger theme or lesson objective within this course. Sometimes the source documents will represent opposing views of an issue but not always. Sometimes, the source documents will simply represent cultural/economic, political attitudes of a particular period.
You may NOT quote directly from either of your primary source documents in this analytical essay. One of the critical elements of this task is to demonstrate your ability to deconstruct and summarize primary source documents.
Below are the two files I attached:
