ASSIGNMENT

Write a minimum of 9300 words that will argue against the American Revolution as Loyalist or Tory citizens.

Loyalist James Chalmers, under the pseudonym of Candidus, wrote Plain Truth in response to Thomas Paine’s famous pamphlet Common Sense.  You can click on the enclosed link to read Thomas Paine at Gutenberg Project.  Then read the excerpted text from Chalmers below, shaping your statement in support or in opposition to Chalmer’s argument.

Your submission should be a minimum of 9250 words in length.  Try not to make assumptions.  Instead, assume the historical role of someone who lived in the colonies in the period up to, and including, the American Revolution. You could be a Colonial politician, a merchant, a farmer, a shop owner, or even a Southern plantation owner. Be creative.
