6. Well to be fair, I doubt that most people you ask would know they ever existed.
They aren't really covered well in history class because, although feeding into the draft of 1786, they really didn't have a lasting impact and were ultimately a horrible failure. You can see how they influenced the republic as detailed in the US Constitution, but it was at least a starting point, failure or not. With limited time, I can understand why they are glossed over in history classes, but the idea that the US Constitution magically came into existence along with the Declaration of Independence just makes me laugh so hard I fart.
