What reasons is the period during which the articles were in force called critical period in American history?

Between 1781 and 1789, the United States of America was governed via the Articles of Confederation rather than the Constitution, which established the basic foundation of America as it continues to be governed today. This period of time (which usually extends back to 1776) has rightly been called the 'critical period' of American History for two reasons: First, it decided the question as to America's basic existence. Second, it determined the actual foundation on which America would grow as an independent nation following its achievement of independence.
