Dear readers:

In this eighth essay on the defects of the Articles of Confederation, the topic of a lack of a federal-state guarantee is discussed.  At issue is the ensuring that every state will maintain a republican form of government.  At the time of the Constitutional Convention, this problem was fresh in the minds of the founders due to the recent rebellion in Massachusetts led by Daniel Shays.  Because of its length, this essay is available only in pdf format.
