Storyboard Text

  • Hi, my name is Jerry I am here to tell you about the making of the U.S. Constitution.
  • In the early 17th Century, thirteen colonies came to the New World for a variety reasons but after a period of time, the colonies felt the need to no longer be governed by the King of England.
  • The thirteen colonies desired a strong centralized government, which led to the formation of Articles of Confederation. The Articles of Confederation created a type of government that derived all of its from within the states. This form of government succeeded as it saw the nation through Revolutionary War.
  • After the ratification of the Articles of Confederation in March 1781, the government suddenly fell into chaos, resulting from lack of central government. The Framers, "Founding Fathers", came to the conclusion to form new laws that would resolve the turmoil, also known as the U.S. Constitution, which was written by George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, and also among others.
  • The Framers, "Founding Fathers", drafted the U.S. Constitution or the Articles of America ( a document establishing the structure, functions, and limitations of a government), giving new sets of laws that all the states would follow in order for the government to function smoothly.
  • The ratification of the U.S. Constitution was one of the many steps of making a powerful government, which led to more forms of government like the Federal System to govern the United States and giving people more freedom to express their opinions. Which is of the Bill of Rights.
