a person who lives in the Americas and supports the British Empire

It is July 4, 1776. You are a loyalist (a person who lives in the Americas and supports the British Empire), and you are seeing the Declaration of Independence for the first time.
Step 1, gather evidence (statistics, events, and examples) from your textbook and the lectures concerning British Empire issues in the Americas up to but not after July 4, 1776. Also carefully read the Declaration of Independence in your textbook.
Step 2, analyze the evidence. In the Declaration’s list of complaints (statements that begin with “He”, meaning King George III of Britain), find rebel complaints that a loyalist would view as the most misleading or offensive and why.
Step 3, communicate your findings honestly to yourself and others. Write a three-page paper (around 1,500 words) showing your conclusions from your analyses, and the copious evidence (statistics, events, and examples) that led you to those conclusions. Then go to the “Course Work” tab, select “Assignments,” and submit your paper in the appropriate folder.
