  2. I take it you mean the Articles of Confedration that was our first constitution way back in the 1700s? A confederation as opposed to other forms of government (for example, unitary or federalism) emphasizes the political power of the smaller divisions over an apparatus of central authority. I am a history major with the ambition of entering law school someday. Please feel free to post more questions like this and I would be more than glad to help you.
