1. Articles of Confederation – some weaknesses were they werent allowed to pass laws untill some of the 13 states were approved. each state had only one vote. another weakness was that they did not have an executive branch.
By 1786, Americans recognized that the Articles of Confederation, the foundation document for the new United States adopted in 1777, had to be substantially modified.




2. Constitutional Convention Compromises – What was the issue? What were the two perspectives? What was the solution?
