Correct response: What are the Articles of Confederation?
More information about Final Jeopardy:
According to the Library of Congress, the Articles of Confderation and Perpetual Union were adopted in November 1777 and sent to the states for ratification. Once ratification occurred by the states, the Articles were ordered to be engrossed on June 26, 1778. Unfortunately, the first engrossed copy was found to be incorrect the next day. A second engrossed copy was produced and was signed and ratified by eight states on July 9, 1778.
The Articles of Confederation were the original constitution of the United States, but there were immediately issues with it, as the central government’s power as quite limited, especially in terms of enforcement powers. The United States’ current constitution was drafted in 1787, ratified by 1788, and the government began operations under its new form on March 4, 1789.
