  • After the Articles of Confederation were ratified, the nation didn't really have a certain form of currency.  For farmers that meant their government forced them to sell their land and livestock  in order to support themselves 
  • This is Daniel Shays an American Farmer that has had enough of these demands 
  • Daniel and many other farmers rallied together they stormed courthouses so the judges couldn't take away their land.
  • later...
  • These farmers are right. THIS CALLS FOR A CONVENTION!!!!
  • Each state sent one representative to go to the convention. In Philadelphia in May 1787.  
  • We have come together to disscus the Articles of Confederation 
  • With these Articles of Confederation, our government cannot impose taxes leading these farmers to give up their lives 
  • These laws are unjust and need to be changed. I impose that we have a new form of government. One that will lead our country rightfully.
  • later.. after months of gatherings the Constitution was written
