The Continental Congress adopted the Articles of Confederation, the first constitution of the United States, on November 15, 1777.

The need for a stronger Federal government soon became apparent and eventually led to the Constitutional Convention in 1787. The present United States Constitution replaced the Articles of Confederation on March 4, 1789.
