The weaknesses of the Articles of Confederation
Leave this is American Territory
After much debate the Continental Congress created the first constitution called the Articles of Confederation for the United States. It held a loose alliance with all 13 states.
The Congress with the rules of the Articles of Confederation were able to coin money, declare war, appoint officers, and held foreign affairs.
The revise of the Constitution
The Congress had some weakness such as money problems because they could not tax the states. Also the states had conflict between each other which they could not get into. Then other Nations take advantage of them. For example Spain close the ports that the Americans use since they know the Americans government is weak.
No we're staying
The farmers could not pay their taxes with the ports are closed. The farmers were being seized because of this. A men name Daniel Shays wanted the seizing to stop so he started a rebellion. They were attacking court house until the legislature got the militia to scare them away.
After Shays Rebellion the Americans notice that the Articles of Confederation does not work. So the government decided to revise the Articles. But at the end they ended up changing the Articles completely.
