Comparing and Contrasting Perspectives on The Constitution Lincolns and Marshalls speech Essay

I’m studying for my Political Science class and don’t understand how to answer this. Can you help me study?

 

Using your knowledge from the textbook chapters one through four and a careful reading of the bi-centennial speech on the Constitution by Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall, write an essay that compares similarities and contrasts differences between Marshall’s Speech and Lincoln’s Second Inaugural Speech, ) on these two points:

a) how does each writer’s positions relate to the Constitution (in its original form) as a basis for government, and

b) what does each writer think of democracy as an ideal?

Your answer should be between two and three pages long (up to 750 words, more or less; double-spaced and typed). Please use paragraphs to organize your ideas (topic sentences are a good thing too). Refer to the texts to support your points, use proper citations for paraphrase and quotation.
