The U.S. Constitution, which was not approved and implemented by the member states until 1789. From the offical end of the Revolution until then, the Articles of Confederation loosely bound the 13 independent states.

This emphasis on "state's rights" was why the secessionist states of 1861 fought the Civil War as the Confederate States of America.
