Transcript of Articles of Confederation vs Declaration of Independence.

Articles of Confederation vs Declaration of Independence.
The Articles of Confederation initially established a weak national government that consisted of a one-house legislature called Congress. Each state had only one vote. The chief executive (President) did not exist, and neither did the national court system. With the weaknesses of the Articles, the Congress could not pay soldiers after the Revolutionary War.
Declaration of Independence
• Created in 1776.
• The Declaration of Independence stated that America would be separate from Great Britain.
• It eventually started the Revolutionary War.
• The main writer of the declaration was Thomas Jefferson.
• Georgia had mixed reactions and feelings because it was still fairly loyal to Britain.
The Declaration of Independence was approved of and signed a year after the battles of Lexington and Concord. The document contained 1,458 words. There were three parts to the document. The first part was called the Preamble. The document itself declared war against Great Britain for their freedom and independence from colonization.
The Articles of Confederation
• Very weak
• Ratified in 1781
• Could not establish trade with other countries.
• The articles were rewritten by Congress and replaced by the U.S. Constitution.
• Each state had its own money system.
