Reply To: Why were the Articles of Confederation abandoned?


Well, I just watched the lecture, “The Constitution Movement,” and that seemed to answer who the primary movers were for the abandonment of the Articles and some reasons why they desired to do so. But I feel like it hasn’t fully been explained why a new constitution was necessary, if the largest problem was lack of revenue (especially since the Articles had gotten them through a war).

I will intently listen to the subsequent lectures and look forward to responses.
