Despite the Confederation Congress' shortcomings, it did have two major accomplishments during its brief existence. First, it was the Confederation Congress that led Great Britain's former colonies to victory during the American Revolution. Second, the Congress also drafted the blueprint for how Ohio and other territories would become states within what would become the United States of America. The Ordinance of 1784, the Land Ordinance of 1785, and the Northwest Ordinance of 1787 set out a plan for the development and settlement of America's frontier.
