  • Slide 37
  • Articles of Confederation Articles of Confederation, was the basic law of the country from its adoption in 1781 until 1789, when it was superseded by the U.S. Constitution. When the founding fathers wrote up the Articles they wanted to avoid the tyranny that they had under British rule. As a result of this fear, they created a central (national) government that had very limited powers. This way, they thought, the government could not become so strong that it would abuse its power as the King had done
  • Slide 38
  • Strengths The Congress, or central government, made up of delegates chosen by the states, was given the power to: conduct foreign affairs make treaties, declare war maintain an army and a navy coin money establish post offices.
  • Slide 39
  • Weaknesses The government was unicameral, meaning it had only one house or legislative body. Each State had one vote. There was no executive branch so there was no President. There was also no judicial branch because it was expected that the states would judge lawbreakers.
  • Slide 40
  • Weaknesses It could not raise money by collecting taxes; it had to ask for money from the states who were under no obligation to give the money. it had no control over foreign commerce it could not regulate trade between the states and dates were free to tax each other. it could pass laws but could not force the states to comply with them. Thus, the government was dependent on the willingness of the various states to carry out its measures, and often the states refused to cooperate. it could not draft soldiers and had to ask the states to provide them willingly. In addition, the articles were virtually impossible to amend, so problems could not be corrected.
