  • Constitution
  • Suffrage
  • Ratification
  • A constitution is a set of basic principles that determines the powers and duties of a government. A constitution showed a belief in Republication. This resulted in a limited government, which keeps leaders from gaining too much power.
  • Suffrage is voting rights. In some states, voting rights were only open to white men who were paying taxes. Other states let white men vote if they owned property.
  • Ratification is formal approval. The 13 colonies received the Articles of Confederation from the Second Continental Congress. They all had to ratify it for a new government.
