The first governing document of America in a handsome gift edition. Part of Applewood's Little Books of American Wisdom series. The Articles of Confederation were passed by the Continental Congress in 1777, but were not ratified by the states until 1781. This first governing document put the new country in good stead, but it had some shortcomings, including the creation of a weak central government. It was replaced by the U.S. Constitution in 1789.
