- The Articles of Confederation
The Articles of Confederation failed because of the fact that congress did not have a central control over any of the states.

It was weak and it lacked the powers that were needed to run America effectively and efficiently. The Constitution ultimately had everything that the Articles of Confederation lacked. The Constitution established an office for the President and the Supreme Court.

Nevertheless, some historians argue that, despite the overwhelming advantages enjoyed by the North, the outcome of the war hinged on one critical battle - Gettysburg. If the...
