Do Now: Consider the word government. What does it mean to you? What is its purpose? What examples can you give of institutions that involve some sort of governmental structure? How do these governmental structures influence your everyday life?


Articles of confederation

  • When the colonists first came to America, they modeled their governments after the British governments in their legislative assemblies and courts.

  • After the Revolutionary War the colonies feared a central government holding too much power because of their previous experience with the British king.

  • They created a governing document that left many important powers to the states.

  • The Articles provided a unicameral structure for the new government and established a “League of friendship” among the 13 independent states.
