Articles of Confederation were Created
What a good name
Articles of Confederation it is.
Continental army wins at Cow pens. They use smart military tactics to trick the British into thinking they were weak an should push.
To vote in the United States you had to be a male over 21 who was white, payed taxes, and owned land.
Admitting New States
Michigan has just reached 60,000 free people and would like to be there own state.
The Articles of Confederation were made as the first government by the delegates from the different states. This was the first form of government in the United States. It was a weak early form of government.
The Articles of Confederation were Changed
I have a better idea, it's called the Virginia plan
Alright, lets all agree this government is garbage. We need to drop this and start from scratch
Shay's Rebellion was started because farmers were mad that they could not pay the taxes being placed on them by the Articles of Confederation. They then went and attacked government buildings and stole arms when George Washington stopped them.
WE CAN'T PAY OUR TAXES!!!!
When admitting the 5 new states to the United States a state had to have 60,000 free people and had to get approval from congress to become a new state. The new states added were Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin, Ohio, and Michigan.
So did Illinois. They want to be their own state.
When the time came to revise the Articles of Confederation two ideas were proposed. The Virginia plan were states populations matter because more population gives more representitives in the house and the New Jersey plan were each state got 1 representative no matter what their population was.
Ya your right, I have an idea it's called the New Jersey Plan.
