The Articles of Confederation

The advantages and disadvantages

The Advantages

1. The issue over the western lands was solved under the Articles.
2.the newly created states would have the same rights and privileges as the original 13 states.
3.the states were held together until a new government under the Constitution was created.


1. could n`t tax
2. No central government power
3. there was no President
4. There was foreign currency between states
5. no army
6. could not control trade.
8. No national court system

My reason

I feel the delegates designed the document with a weak central government because the document in my opinion their is basicly no government placed by the document.
