The Enlightenment and the Creation of the United States

Due December 1,  2017

Each member of the founding generation looked at the American society around them in the terminology and philosophy developed during the Age of Reason. The “founding fathers” of the United States of America were all students of the philosophes and purposely set about developing the fledgling nation based upon these ideas.

In this post, you must demonstrate how at least one idea or philosophe helped influence the creation of the newly formed American nation. Remember not to repeat the elements of a fellow blogger's post; unless you bring a new or unique perspective to the information. Also, remember to use illustrative historical details to strengthen and develop your post.
