1781 · The First Constitution

Age 1

Serving the newly created United States of America as the first constitution, the Articles of Confederation were an agreement among the 13 original states preserving the independence and sovereignty of the states. But with a limited central government, the Constitutional Convention came together to replace the Articles of Confederation with a more established Constitution and central government on where the states can be represented and voice their concerns and comments to build up the nation.
1787 · New Jersey Plan

Age 7

Also referred to as the Small State Plan, the New Jersey Plan was an important piece of legislation that William Paterson presented during the Constitutional Convention. The plan was created because states with smaller populations were concerned about their representation in the United States government. The New Jersey plan proposed, among other things, that each state would have one equal vote. This was in contrast to the Virginia Plan, which suggested that appointment for Congress should be proportional to state population. The Connecticut Compromise merged the two plans, allowing for two "houses" of congress: one with proportional representation, and the other with equal power from each state (as the New Jersey Plan had suggested).
1794 · Creating the Eleventh Amendment

Age 14

The Eleventh Amendment restricts the ability of any people to start a lawsuit against the states in federal court.
