The Articles of Confederation is a form of government that allowed each section of the country to have their own governmental group They made and used their own laws but could not be over ruled by the central government The central government was also very restricted on making policies and decisions The difference between a federation and a confederation isnt always easy to make A confederation has morelimited powers with the central government than the federation does Usually only national defense and foreign relations and a few other minor things are assigned to the federation One way to remember the difference is to look and see who is controlling the taxes or enforcing the law over individuals Confederations do not have the authority to do direct taxing or to enforcement of the law over each citizen They have to depend on the regional governments to provide their own taxes and law keeping The Articles of Confederation were adopted on November 15th 1777 The articles were written to help govern the 13 colonies Laws had to be instated because of corruption within the colonies The colonies wanted a form of government that would allow for no one person to make all the rules This did work for a period of time The 13 articles provided many different things In the following pages you will learn that not all of the articles were good Many failed due to the way they were set up it would take a unanimous vote to have anything changed and this was very hard to do After much thought the Articles were replaced with the Constitution
