The 7 Articles of the Constitution

Julia Wilburn

What are the articles? What is the preamble?

The articles are guild lines for the government. The articles proceed the preamble. The preamble introduces the constitution and states the governments purposes; "to form a more perfect union", "to establish justice", and "to insure domestic tranquility".
