Title: Articles of Confederation


1
Articles of Confederation
By Cadet Crossman
2
What are they?
The Article of Confederation and Perpetual Union,
more commonly know as the Articles of
Confederation, formed the first governing
document of the United States of America. They
combined the colonies of the American
Revolutionary War into a loose confederation.

The Treaty of Paris ended the Revolution,
established the United States as a member of the
community of nations, and fixed its boundaries.
But it also left formidable tasks in its wake.
Americans still had to convince a skeptical world
that their new nation could maintain an effective
government for its people, assert control over
its new lands, and protect national interests
beyond its borders.
