What criticism of the articles of confederation and which government did they say they had too much of it?
The Articles of Confederation was a weak government. Shays Rebellion demonstrated this fact when government authorities could not decide whether the state or the national government should put down the revolt. Larger states wanted to do away with the Articles of Confederation because they thought the central government needed to be stronger while smaller states wanted to keep the Articles of Confederation because they were afraid of having a strong central government.
