William Richardson Davie, was among those who did not believe the Articles of Confederation went far enough to outline the duties of each branch of the government. He believed such things as the method of selecting senators could lead to representatives voting along lines of prejudice might prevail, and as with the Articles of Confederation, there would be no immediate solution.

William Patterson was against slavery. He fought very hard to get slavery banned from the constitution. It was one of the things he wanted revised out of the articles of confederation.

The men that were going against the government were trying to make the articles of confederation. the articles of confederation were weak, they consisted of only a legislative branch with no judicial or executive. having shays rebellion made the people know they need to change the articles of confederation. after that we had a stronger and more powerful central government.

Yes, the Anti-Federalists were obviously against it, though.

One argument against the Articles of Confederation is that congress had no power over state governments or their citizens. If an individual citizen or a whole state government ignored a resolution passed by congress, congress couldn't make them follow the resolution.

Shay's Rebellion backfired because of how cruel the confederation was against the Native Americans. The people thus started to resent the confederation.

Considering they were against a strong central government and the Articles gave more power (actually almost all power) to the states, it can be concluded they were for the Articles.

During the Revolutionary War, the Americansrealized that they needed to unite to win the war against Britain. So after they decided many things about what they wanted the government to be like, they reached a final plan called the Articles of Confederation.

No, they are the original basic framework for a new country that was deifying England and ready to wage war against their homeland. They would be the opposite of articles of surrender.

The Articles of ConfederationIn 1777, the Second Continental Congress drafted the Articles of Confederation. It was ratified in 1781, and it became the first set of laws of the United States.The Articles of Confederation provided for a weak and ineffective central government. There was no executive power (like the President), and there was no judicial power (like the courts).The Articles of Confederation provided for a Congress, but the Congress had no power. The Congress could not tax, raise armies, or pay debts. The Congress also had no power to regulate commerce between states. This led to states passing tariff laws against the other states.The new country was heading for disunity.

no he was not against confederation. Because he had convinced them to join.

There were many reasons that led the people to call for changes to the Articles of Confederation. One such reason was because too many states fought among themselves which in turn weakened the government instead of united the colonies against Britain.

The Articles of Confederation and Perpetual Union was drafted in 1777 and became binding in 1781. The articles put several limits on the Confederate Congress including the inability to create one currency for all the Southern states, and not giving them power to make states do anything against their will.

These "Articles" were the precursor to the Constitution. They were written to give the Continental Congress the authority it needed to act as a federation of states united primarily for the defense of the colonies against the tyranny of the British Monarchy.

Farmers did not work very well with the Articles of Confederation. In fact, a number of farmers that were disgruntled about it decided to lead a revolt against the Massachusetts state government from the year 1786 to 1787.
