This is called the State Constitutions, where all the states write their own detailed constitution, before the Declaration of Independence.
This is so unfair, we need our independence.
You didnt hear this from me, but each state is writing their own constitution, to help with this drama.
This shows the ORDINANCE of 1785
I Thomas Jefferson, wrote the Land Ordinance of 1785. It was the US. government sale of the land to the west of the Appalachians, east of the Mississippi, and north of the Ohio River. I created it in hopes that the land would be divided into states. The ORDINANCE.

This is the creation of the Articles of Confederation
finally we won our independence, What do we do now?
This is Shay's rebellion and the weaknesses of the Articles of Confederation.
There are too many issues! Our government can't afford military, there are too many disputes about boundary lines, and there aren't any enforced laws or court systems Without leadership and the need for unanimous consent, there are too many weaknesses that need to be fixed!
