Advantages and Disadvantage
of the Articles of Confedetation
Although the Articles of Confederation seemed to have many troubles going for it, there were a few things that were consider strengths and where later used in the Constitution. The articles did include a unified army for the states and could build and control an army. They also set up a legislature that allowed each state to have one vote and had the ability to deal with foreign countries on the behalf of the states. And if nothing else these Articles were a experience for the writers and they learned the what would work for the U.S. and resulted in a better Constitution.
