The USofA Constitution did not repeal or supersede The Articles of Confederation and Perpetual Union

Nowhere in The Constitution for The United States of America does it state that it repeals or supersedes The Articles of Confederation and Perpetual Union.

It’s common for new contracts to reference an old contract.

If they make a new contract that is clearly inconsistent with a former contract, a court will hold that the earlier contract has been superseded by the later contract. It is preferable, however, to expressly state in the later contract that the earlier one has been superseded. – See US – Discharge and Substitution of a Contract

Therefore the constitution must be doing something different than the articles.

And they exist in parallel.

Just at first glance

  • the articles seem more focused on the confederation and union whereas
  • the constitution seems more focused on the structure of the district – the ten-mile square.
