One of the most important compromises is the Great Compromise. It was a compromise between two plans pushed forward; the Virginia plan and the New Jersey plan. The Virginia plan wanted representation in congress to be based off of states population. The New Jersey plan wanted equal representation for each state no matter the size. Ultimately the great compromise combined both of these plans and set up what we know today as the House of Reps. and Congress. One based on population of each state, and the other based off of two senators per state appointed by state legislatures.

The Articles of Confederation was the original binding document of the United States and served as the supreme law of the land from March 1, 1781 until the ratification of the… United States Constitution (on June 21, 1788). The Articles of Confederation and Perpetual Union were adopted by the 2nd Continental Congress on November 15th, 1777. They sought to combine the disparate colonies under a single governmental entity. They were the first attempt at a government for the United States, but were eventually replaced by the Constitution. Weaknesses of the Articles of Confederation The Articles of Confederation gave too much power to the states and not enough to the central government. The central government wasn't able to pass laws or taxes if all the states did not approve. There was no president or federal judiciary. Essentially, the colonies could not operate effectively as a nation. The Articles of Confederation was the original binding document of the United States and served as the supreme law of the land from 1781 until the ratification of the United States Constitution in 1787. It defined the powers of the Continental Congress and provided for a weak federation of autonomous states. Americans of the time were generally opposed to a strong central government, which they feared would lead to despotism, and the Articles delegated most significant powers to the individual states. The Congress was granted power only over foreign policy, war, and setting standards. It had no power over trade, could not directly tax the people, could not enforce laws, and could not compel states to cooperate with one another. As such, the early United States was more similar to an alliance of 13 independent countries than to the federal state of modern times.
It was a document that was the predecessor to the Constitution and it made a very weak federal government with strong state governments.
The Articles of Confederation was the document that organized a "perpetual Union" among the 13 states that had declared independence. The Articles were in effect between M…arch 1, 1781, and March 4, 1789, when they were superseded by the Constitution of the United States of America. Each colony had their own constitution, and over that was British Common Law and the Magna Carta. The Continental Congress adopted the Articles of Confederation, the first constitution of the United States, on November 15, 1777. However, ratification of the Articles of Confederation by all thirteen states did not occur until March 1, 1781. The Articles created a loose confederation of sovereign states and a weak central government, leaving most of the power with the state governments. The need for a stronger Federal government soon became apparent and eventually led to the Constitutional Convention in 1787. The present United States Constitution replaced the Articles of Confederation on March 4, 1789. It was a document that was the predecessor to the Constitution and it made a very weak federal government with strong state governments.
The Articles of Confederation are the first attempt at uniting the USA under one government. They however failed at doing this.
