Locke and Jefferson

The Declaration of Independence is without a doubt based on the principles of Locke. The first two paragraphs are a direct summary of his ideas. Furthermore upon doing some more research on him I discovered who told him to read Locke. A Professor at William and Mary named William Small. Yes he read it.

  1. The depth of the entry is a bit shallow. You could have easily pointed out the connections from the text of the documents in paragraph 1. The discovery of Professor Small however was great stuff and saved this entry. 13/15
