The Heart of the Declaration of Independence. You already wrote the first 4 pages of this research paper. Now its time to finish the 10-12 page research paper. For this course, you are required to write an 10-12 page research paper which will be due by the end of Week Eight. Your papers must conform to the Chicago style (also called Turabian) for citations and layout. This includes a title page, footnotes, and a bibliography.
