PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This PowerPoint deals with the U.S. government established by the Articles of Confederation. It begins with a look at the origins of the document with the Second Continental Congress and approval by the states. It then examines the powers given to the national government and the powers denied. It then attempts to explain why the power of the national government was so limited under the Articles. It then examines the process of creating new state constitutions. It spends some time looking at the successes of the government under the Articles including the Land Ordinance of 1785 and the Northwest Ordinance of 1787. The rest of the presentation deals with the failings of the national government including its inability to tax, to regulate commerce and deal with episodes like Shays' Rebellion. It concludes with a brief examination of the Annapolis Convention in preparation for the Constitutional Convention. This presentation is used in an AP U.S. history class and is based in part on Chapter 9 of The American Pageant, 14th ed.
