Document(source) chosen should be no longer than 1-3pages; it can be as short as 1/3 page. The document must have been produced in early North America or the United States, between 1600 and 1877.
as for me, maybe focus on The Declaration of Independence.
The goal of such an analysis is a full understanding of the meaning and language of the document and its usefulness as a historical source. Again, the purpose is NOT telling a story based on the document. This is not a research essay.
