The AOC Comic

Storyboard Text

  • The Articles of Confederation was an agreement among these fine states . Pretty much all of the power was in the states leading to a very weak central form of government . The leaders did this so no government could tax people like the Brits did.
  • Don't even get me started with the AOC because without power in the government then it is almost impossible to get new laws and ideas passed. this is bad because if we want to change something every state has to agree which wont happen
  • With the AOC our military is very weak leaving us vulnerable this is bad because other countries could come and fight us and we wouldn't stand much of a chance against them 
  • The northwest Ordinance was made to give any new states that were or were being made to have the same power and rights as the original existing states. Also it made a line between slave states and free states. to become a new state there had to be at least 5000 free men there in order for it to pass through.
  • The northwest ordinance in the northwest territories had a big effect on the people there and new states that were going to be there because it outlawed slavery. so the people there were free of slavery.
  • Shays Rebellion was an uprising from a group of people that were protesting the fact that there was too much debt in the country and the non taxing was one of the main causes of it this was prime example that the articles of confederation was a failed government because with no strong central form of government they were very vulnerable to all sorts of problems.
