This paper will serve as an examination of the powers and limitations of the United States legislative branch of government in matters of war. In doing this, precedence will be given to specifically enumerated powers granted or withheld by the current Constitution of the United States. Founding documents, such as the Articles of Confederation and early state constitutions will also be examined and contrasted with the current legal regime in an attempt to better understand the true meaning behind the Constitution. International law, as it applies to American war powers, will also be examined when relevant.
