Admitting New States
We have new states!!
The constitution was the document with rules and the laws. The bill of rights was the list of our 10 freedoms. Right now every state has its own laws.
The Articles of Confederation were created as a loose alliance of the 13 colonies. The Articles had the power to declare war, handled foreign affairs ( alliance/working with other countries), appointed military officers and coined money.
In order to admit a new state you have to have 60,00 free people and get approval to become a state.There are 5 new states; Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Michigan, and Wisconsin.
Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Michigan, and Wisconsin!
