OW FAR IS IT TRUE TO SAY NO AMERICAN CONSTITUTION: NO UNITED STATES?”

THIS IS AN AMERICAN HISTORY ESSAY COVERING THE PERIODS OF THE 18TH AND 19TH CENTURIES. IT MUST FOLLOW ALL USUAL ACADEMIC CONVENTIONS, AND BE BOTH ANALYTICAL AND BIASED TOWARDS THE VIEWPOINT THAT IF THE ARTICLES OF CONFEDERATION HAD INDEED REMAINED THE FRAMEWORK OF GOVERNMENT FROM THE 1700S UNTIL THE 21ST CENTURY THEN THE UNITED STATES WOULD NOT HAVE SURVIVED TO BECOME THE SUPERSTATE WHICH IT IS TODAY.
PLEASE USE THE HARVARD SYSTEM FOR REFERENCING.
