Montesquieu *Enlightenment thinker *Separation of powers * Influenced the structure of our government in the Constitution
Separation of Power *Setting the government up with 3 branches: legislative, executive and judicial *This was done so no one person or group gets too powerful and takes the people's rights away

Articles of Confederation *Document that created the first gov't of the United States *Used through the American Revolution *Created a federal government that was too weak, so it needed to be replaced
