The Articles of Confederation are important because although they were weak in terms of government power, they were America's Second Constitution. **The weaknesses are the confederation could not make an army,made all the states have only one vote, there was no president, or a national court system.** (who ever answered this question first...I asked for the weakesses...and they are above and true...ur welcome..mine are wit the stars)
