Why is the Magna Carta important?  The Magna Carta is considered the founding document of English liberties and hence American  liberties. The influence of Magna Carta can be seen in the United States Constitution and the Bill of  Rights. What did our first national government look like under the Articles of Confederation (our first  U.S. constitution)?  How much power did it have?  What were the problems governing under it?  What were the major compromises made at the Constitutional Convention, e.g. Connecticut  Compromise?  What were the Antifederalist greatest concerns?
