The dispute that threatened to divide the states during the ratification of the Articles of Confederation was the land beyond the Appalachian Mountains. The question was just who held the title to those vast lands. The King of England had closed the area to settlement in 1763. Virginia led the way by ceeding the northern part of her western lands to the government in 1781. The other states, except Georgia, followed suit. The Northwest Ordinances of 1784 and 1787 were then enacted to settle the land dispute and to map out the territories.
The Continental Congress of the United states felt the articles of confederation were not working and ratified a new constitution during the Philadelphia Convention of 1787. The electoral college unanimously elected Washington as 1st president under the constitution.The United States of America was actually formed on March 1, 1781 with the adoption of The Articles of Confederation by Maryland whose delegates delayed its ratification over a western border dispute with Virginia and New York. Upon the March 1 ratification the President of the Continental Congress officially became President of the United States in Congress Assembled.Note: Washington was not the first president under the previously ratified articles of confederation, there were several before him, most notably John Hanson.
If you mean as in the dealing with western land, then it eventually settled that all western land gained (both claimed by states and unsettled territory) was bought by the government and then redistributed to individual buyers under the Northwest Ordinance and Land Ordinance of 1785 and eventually surveyed.
Washington was the first president elected under the Constitution. But the United States existed as a nation for several years before the Constitution was enacted, held together by the Articles of Confederation. The United States declared its independence in 1776, yet Washington did not take office until April 30, 1789.So who was running the country during these initial years of this young country?The United States of America was actually formed on March 1, 1781 with the adoption of The Articles of Confederation by Maryland whose delegates delayed its ratification over a western border dispute with Virginia and New York. Upon the March 1 ratification the President of the Continental Congress officially becamePresident of the United States in Congress Assembled. John Hanson was the first President of the United States to serve the full one-year term (1781â€“82), under the ratified Articles of Confederation
