The Confederate Crier


How the Constitution changed Us!

By Lauren Grady
Civil War Reporter


The first constitution was called the Articles of Confederation, the Articles of Confederation was not a good constitution. There was many bad laws that weren't good. When we came up with the new constitution the laws got better. There were few laws that needed to be changed. During the civil war the North believed everyone should have the same laws. The south believed they should do what they want and make their own laws. The new constitution changed all that, the president made the laws and they combined the two opinions and made both the North and South happy!
