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.
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
And so with this new form of government, we can finally become our own independant country with a stable government
