Creating the Constitution 1781-1791
On 1 March, 1781, the Articles of Confederation were ratified, giving a new sense of abundant freedom to the American people. Under the articles, all states and their people were deemed independent. This resulted in a weak central government, unable to regulate commerce and pass taxes.
Due to this freedom, the state of Massachusetts was able to enforce heavy taxes upon it's residents. This led to an uprising between 1786 and 1787 known as Shays' Rebellion after it's leader, Revolutionary War veteran Daniel Shays.
