People Who Helped the Creation of the Constitution
"The Articles of Confederation was the first constitution that was approved in the United States. The Continental Congress adopted the articles on November 15, 1777, but complete ratification of the constitution did not occur until March of 1791. " However, the Articles of Confederation had many problems.
The Articles of Confederation failed because the government was not allowed to tax citizens. With this the government had no money and could not be stable. Another problem is that it provided too much independence for the states.
Three people who impacted the creation of the Constitution is Benjamin Franklin, James Madison, and Roger Sherman. Ben contributed towards the Constitution thoroughly, he was even one of the few men to stand up against slavery. James helped draft Virginia's state constitution and served in the Continental Congress.
