The strengths or good thins that the AOC's did was treaty with Paris in 1778 during the american revolution,they ended the American revolution war winning Americans independence ,establised the department of affairs/war/and marines,and all the privileges and immunities of free citizens in several states.
weaknesses of AOC's
Sadly the government had absolutely no power over the states much less the country ,they had no army,No currency (the states made there own would not take other states money),not able to tax,no court system.The states were in control of taxing and they over taxed. everyone owed money including the AOC owing money to pairs/France after the war.They were a mess
