Articles of Confederation

A 3 page research paper that discusses the Articles of Confederation, which constitutes the first attempt by the Founding Fathers of the United States to form the legal foundation for the central government. Ratified in 1781, it was intended to unify the states and define the powers of the Continental Congress. The Articles of Confederation were eventually abandoned because this document was determined to be ineffectual in giving the central government sufficient authority to carry out its mission. However, examination of the Articles shows that they did serve a limited purpose and definitely provided the young country with a learning experience that led to the creation of the current Constitution. Bibliography lists 4 sources.
