I’ve often recommended students diagram the Preamble to the Constitution, to better understand the source of authority in our government (“We, the People”).
Betsy (I have no surname) sent me a link to this:
The work is done at a the site of Capital Community College, their “Guide to Grammar and Writing.”
Here’s the Preamble as it usually appears:
We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
I wonder: Has anyone diagrammed the Mayflower Compact?
