Why did you come up with the Articles of Confederation?

The Articles of Confederation were created as the plan of government for the new United States after the Revolutionary War. Because the states had just fought a war to free themselves from a strong government, they decided to create a much weaker government for themselves. In the Articles of Confederation, the federal government had very few powers and the state governments ruled the new country. After Shays' Rebellion in Massachusetts, the Constitutional Convention was held in Philadelphia to create the Constitution. The early Americans realized that a weak government was not going to hold them together.
