The Articles of Confederation were a set of rules for the new born American colonies to abide by. However the Articles lacked stability, court systems, laws, and a central government. This led to the creation of the U.S. Constitution that took the place of the articles and later added to Bill of Rights. == == Loosely bound the states together
