Synopsis: In June 1776, colonial delegates to the Continental Congress began writing a document to set up a new country--with a government independent from Britain. The Articles of Confederation created a limited centralized government, with states keeping most of the power. After sixteen months of debate, delegates finally passed the Articles on November 15, 1777. But afterward, many conflicts arose. It became clear that the country needed--but also feared--a stronger central government.

In June 1776, the Second Continental Congress drafted the Articles of Confederation. Congress was preparing to declare independence from Great Britain, and the Articles would serve as the first constitution for the new U.S. government. After shedding the British monarchy, many American leaders and citizens did not want to recreate a strong central government. That tension between state and federal power was at the forefront in the drafting of the Articles. When completed and ratified in March 1781, the Articles gave individual states sovereignty over most issues, while creating a looseand generally weaknational government. The Articles did not provide for an executive leader, taxes, or standard policies on trade and treaties, and by 1787, it became clear that Articles needed revising. A 1787 convention of state delegates led to the writing of the U.S. constitution, which replaced the Articles. Bookseller Inventory # FLT9780761353300
