    Wasn't the Constitution illegal under the the Articles of Confederation


    You still haven't explained why you mentioned the Confederacy from the 19th century.
    You still haven't confirmed what connection it had to the 18th century Articles of Confederation.
    Because it says so in our federal Constitution. One reason for appealing to the People, "was to let them out of the Articles" without the stated requirements.

    What did it say in the Articles of Confederation

    Was the Constitution, and the forming of the federal union, lawful under those articles ?

    All political power is inherent in the people; and all free governments are founded on their authority for their equal protection and benefit, and they have the right to alter or reform their government as the public welfare may require.
