THIS IS A rewrite/Editing to add some more information to make this essay better. I added a PDF copy of the paper with comments from my professor. I also added the word doc. I was not satisfied with the grade I receieved which was 75% so I am hoping that after more information is added and some improvement is done that I will receive a better grade. The two sources used are also attached in the files.
