When I was in school the whole subject of The Articles of Confederation was glossed over. I was told that The Articles of Confederation were used very early on in our history and then "replaced" by the Constitution.
I would be willing to bet that 99% of the people reading this were given the same pat answer about The Articles of Confederation--- not because our teachers meant to lie to us, but because they were never taught the truth about this subject themselves.
Still, even back then, reading both documents, I had a hard time seeing how The Articles of Confederation could be replaced by the Constitution? That was Sixth Grade.
We passed over the subject again in Eleventh Grade. By then I had even more pesky questions in my mind.
The Articles of Confederation proposed to create a "perpetual Union" so, logic dictates that for that Union to end, some official action would have to be taken by the States to end it. Where, I asked, is that official action?
