Analyze instances in which the three articles emphasize different information about the Fox Sisters. Write an essay in which you determine which author makes the best argument. Evaluate the arguments and claims. Assess whether the reasoning each author uses is sound. Finally, explain which author you think presents the most persuasive evidence to support the arguments or claims. Use evidence from the articles to support your argument.
