The Articles of Confederation was the original binding document of the United States and served as the supreme law of the land from March 1, 1781 until the ratification of the United States Constitution (on June 21, 1788). The Articles of Confederation and Perpetual Union were adopted by the 2nd… Continental Congress on November 15th, 1777. They sought to combine the disparate colonies under a single governmental entity. They were the first attempt at a government for the United States, but were eventually replaced by the Constitution. Weaknesses of the Articles of Confederation The Articles of Confederation gave too much power to the states and not enough to the central government. The central government wasn't able to pass laws or taxes if all the states did not approve. There was no president or federal judiciary. Essentially, the colonies could not operate effectively as a nation. The Articles of Confederation was the original binding document of the United States and served as the supreme law of the land from 1781 until the ratification of the United States Constitution in 1787. It defined the powers of the Continental Congress and provided for a weak federation of autonomous states. Americans of the time were generally opposed to a strong central government, which they feared would lead to despotism, and the Articles delegated most significant powers to the individual states. The Congress was granted power only over foreign policy, war, and setting standards. It had no power over trade, could not directly tax the people, could not enforce laws, and could not compel states to cooperate with one another. As such, the early United States was more similar to an alliance of 13 independent countries than to the federal state of modern times. It was a document that was the predecessor to the Constitution andit made a very weak federal government with strong stategovernments. ( Full Answer )

The answer depends on your definition of statement, It is a grammatical correct English declarative sentence which may be a statement by one definition. However, in logic, a statement is defined to be a sentence that is either true or false but not both. This sentence is not a statement by this def…inition.

Drafted during the years 1776 and 1777, while the colonists were still fighting for independence, the Articles of Confederation created a weak national government with most of the governmental powers retained by the states. The Articles provided no separation of branches. There was no president or a…ny other independent executive, nor was there a federal judicial branch. Congress, the legislature, was the only branch of government. Laws required unanimous votes. Members elected to congress did not vote as individuals, but as states. While congress did have some powers, it could not enforce its laws on the states or the people. States were permitted to coin their own money. There was no regulation of commerce between the states and states could even enter into treaties with foreign nations and declare war, "with the consent of Congress." Congress could not tax the states or the people, it could only request funds to run the government. The government under the Articles proved to be so weak that a convention was called to revise the Articles. This became known as the Constitutional Convention because the delegates decided to throw out the Articles and start creating a new government for the nation. ( Full Answer )

The original Articles of Confederation and Perpetual Union are held by the US National Archives and Records Administration as part of Record Group 360, Papers of the Continental Congress 1774-1789.
The Articles of Confederation themselves were not much of a success, as they established a very weak confederation (actually "a firm league of friendship") among the states. They provided for no separate executive or independent judiciary, and required unanimity among the states for amendment of the… Articles. However, if we speak more generally of the "Critical Period" (1781-1787) under the Articles of Confederation. we can highlight a few significant achievements. For example, the Treaty of Paris (Sept. 3, 1783), ending the Revolutionary War, was accomplished under the Articles of Confederation. More significant were three pieces of legislation about land policy (specifically the Northwest Territory), all passed under the Articles. These include Jefferson's Ordinance of 1784, the Land Ordinance of 1785 (which imposed the grid pattern of the township), and (most importantly) the Northwest Ordinance of 1787, which layed down a system of government and provided for the establishment of new states in the Northwest Territory, to be admitted to statehood on par with the original 13 states - provided they submitted an agreeable republican constitution to Congress.
