Transcript of Amera & Bhaavi

States had more power than a nation. The Articles of Confederation (A Story about an Epic Fail) (AND THE UGLY) Amera Aly and Bhaavi Patel. No way to pay off debt because Government cannot collect taxes. Different currencies - generates depression. The Articles of Confederation inspired the making of the Constitution. Set up a Foreign Affairs Department. That gave American Congress permission to declare war, make peace, form alliances and sign treaties. This symbolized that they were now an independent country. The Good, The Bad and The Ugly. It set up a postal system. STRENGTH 1 STRENGTH 2 STRENGTH 3 WEAKNESS 1 The postal system was set up by Benjamin Franklin. Although Americans were eager to receive mail, it was rare. Ergo (Yes, new transition word), the postal system allows people to communicate better and faster. The delegates realized that the Articles of Confederation was a total FAYUL - that's how all the cool kids say it. They attended the Constitutional Convention and tried to fix the Articles, but realized they couldn't. Thus, making the
CONSTITUTION! Each state was independent, therefore governing themselves. This caused problems because states didn't do many things we do today, such as paying taxes and going to war. They were not united, as they should be, which caused many problems. WEAKNESS 3 WEAKNESS 2 THE HI. CITATIONS: Each individual state had a different currency. Therefore, it would make it difficult to pay off their debt. After realizing this, the different currencies (barely) had any value. Within each state, taxes were voluntary, so nobody really contributed. Also, each state had a different currency making it even more difficult. Without the collection of taxes, America would be in HUGE debt. Davis, Kenneth. American History. 1st ed. California: Harper Collins Publishers, 2003. Print. - BOOK RESOURCES Alchin, Linda.
