Storyboard Text

  • Because of the Articles of Confederation, the Congress could not regulate trade within the States.
  • The Revolutionary War caused the States to go into a great deal of debt and they were falling behind on their payments. 
  • This angered Great Britain because the Americans weren't honoring the Treat of Paris, and weren't paying the money they owed England.
  • The States began to impose tariffs on each other, and they fought over borders. 
  • Finally the Convention met in Philadelphia on February 21, 1787.
  • Here they revised the Articles of Confederation so the government could now control commerce.
