The American Revolution was between Britian and the Continetal army. The Revolution lasted for sevan years.
Weaknesses in the Confderation
The consitution spelt out all of the rights for the citizans. It also limited the power of the goverment.
Admitting New States
The Articals of Confederation created a loose alliance between 13 states. It also limited power, like each state only had one vote, Congress could declar was, appoint military officers, and coin money. But before Congress could pass a law 9 states had to approve.
Admitting New Staes
The end of the Amerian Revolution did not solve the confederation's troubles. After the Revolution the US owd millions of dollors and they did not have the power to tax people. The Continetal Congress solved this problem by printing currency, even if it wasnt worth very much.
A law called for a territory to be survyed and divieded into townships. Once a territory had a population of 60,000 free settlers it could ask Congress to be turned into a new state. In time 5 territories turned into 5 states.
After the Revolution the nation suffered from depression. Shay's Rebelion attacked courthouses to prevent the state from seizing farms.George Washington stopped the rebellion to prevent another Boston Massacure or Boston Tea Party from happening again.
