Storyboard Text

  • At the end of the 18th century, the people realized that the Articles established in 1781 needed changing.

  • We need some basic right that apply to the whole country!
  • The United States must be one Federation, and one alone.
  • No! Our states refuse. We are one Confederation!
  • The territory is too big for one authority!
  • And by some, I mean a lot.
  • Slavery is immoral and it goes against the American values!
  • It is vital for our economy, and we cannot afford to be unstable right now.

  • January 9, 1788
  • Finally, an agreement.
  • Five states out of the 9 we need have approved the Constitution.
