Basis for new government
  • Federalism: sharing of power between federal and state governments

  • Limited government: only had powers granted to it by the Constitution
  • Three branches with ability to check each other
federalists vs anti federalists
Federalists vs. Anti-Federalists
  • Debate between Federalists like Alexander Hamilton and James Madison “Father of Constitution” who supported ratification, strong central government, loose interpretation of Constitution (implied powers)
  • Antifederalists like Jefferson who supported strong states’ rights, strict interpretation (Republicans)
  • Important to many was protection of people against abuse by government
  • Several states refused to ratify until a Bill of Rights was included
federalist papers
Federalist Papers
  • Essays written by Hamilton, Madison, & John Jay to help persuade New York to ratify the Constitution

  • “The prosperity of America depend[s] on the Union. To preserve and perpetuate [maintain] it was the great object of the. . . . plan which the convention has advised [the people] to adopt. . . . “- Alexander Hamilton, Federalist Papers “Number 45”
  • “I will now tell you what I do no not like. First, [there is no] bill of rights. . . A bill of rights is what the people are entitled to against every government on earth. . . .” - Thomas Jefferson, December 20, 1787
  • “This Constitution is said to have beautiful features; but when I come to examine these features, Sir, they appear to me horribly frightful…Your President may easily become King…” - Patrick Henry, “Shall Liberty or Empire be sought”
