Satisfactory Essays
This article is about the process in which the Articles of Confederation were formed. In 1776, John Dickinson led 13 members to write a constitution for a country that would break away and gain it's independence from Great Britain. After several changes and revisions on the first draft, the final draft was completed in 1777. However, even so, the ratification of the Articles of Confederation were not completed until 1781. It was also stated in the article that the Articles of Confederation were purposely made weak so that Great Britain had. But overall, the Article's main fault was that the newly created government was so dependent on the states and couldn't do very much.
