Colonial  Weaknesses

Page history last edited by Mr. Hengsterman 5 years, 2 months ago


Colonies were badly organized, disunited for war. - 

Continental Congress debated, but took little action and exercised less leadership


Written constitution (Articles of Confederation) not adopted until 1781.  


Colonies were jealous of Congress, each other's region


Economic difficulties  - Little metallic currency available (Fearful of taxation, Congress issued virtually worthless Continental currency)


Inflation led to increased prices, desertions from army. Limited military supplies - Inadequate firearms and powder  
American soldiers were numerous but unreliable
