Jared Cassell OJ Gibson APUSH Period 4 11-10-15 Founding Documents Project: The Constitution 1. The Constitution was very important, when it came out, because the Articles of Confederation were so weak. The Constitution filled in the holes, left by the Articles Of Confederation. The articles set up a weak government, and did not unify the colonies well. The Constitution laid a foundation for the new country, because it gave laws and guidelines, for America. It said how the government was supposed to work. It Said how the people, elected into government, should be chosen. The constitution focused more on the rules for the government and country, than it focused on the individual people. 2. The Constitution had a good influence on the US, because it gave a more centralized power to the government(The Constitution, Country Studies). The Constitution was supported by many men, whom the colonists looked up to, such as James Madison and Alexander Hamilton( The Federalist: Publius; but the people didn't know it was them writing, but they supported it).. The colonists were not very accepting to the Constitution

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
