Please consult How to Ask and Requests for Sources. Requests for sources are out of scope. But I think if you ask for the information you need, you'll be fine. People should cite their source material in the answer.

Intriguing question. You may want to revise it to avoid asking for references (reference requests are problematic for H:SE; but I think you're really looking for the information, and the references should arise as a result of providing the information). It would also help if you cited your preliminary research so that we don't merely recapitulate what you've already found.

comment Did the U.S Constitution revoke or merely amend the the Articles of Confederation?
Disagree with @Semaphore completely (and respectfully). Pauline Maier and Jack Raklove both point out the fact that the Constitution was very explicitly NOT approved under the amendment process for the Articles; in fact that approach was explicitly forbidden. The Constitution was submitted to a popular vote, bypassing all legislatures at the time.

Could you highlight the question? I'm not entirely sure what you're asking.

Not sure whether this belongs in history or politics. What research have you done?
