  1. 1. Unit 1.2 – Freedom vs. Security DAILY SHEET #2 ROAD TO THE CONSTITUTION
  2. 2. Learning Objectives  Identify key arguments of Federalists & Anti- Federalists concerning ratification of Constitution? And  Explain how ratifying the Constitution reflected a balance between the promotion of “public good” and protecting “individual rights”? (Bill of Rights, Federalist Papers).
  3. 3. Do Now  liberty: The state of being free within society from oppressive restrictions imposed by authority on one's way of life.  Equality of opportunity: a right supposedly guaranteed by both federal and many state laws.
  4. 4. Constitutional Convention  After it was apparent that the Articles were not working, states sent delegates to a new Constitutional Convention.  In 1787, a new US Constitution was made.  There was disagreement among the states over whether to ratify the Constitution.
  5. 5. Who were the Federalists? (Write this Down) Federalists  Liked the new US Constitution.  Leader: Alexander Hamilton.  Mostly merchants ($) and men from the cities and coastal regions.  Wrote the Federalists Papers to get people to vote for the US Constitution.  Favor a strong central government.
  6. 6. Key Arguments of the Federalists  Without a strong central govt. there would be anarchy (political disorder).  Only a strong central govt. could protect us from enemies.  Only a strong central govt. could solve a country’s internal problems.  A Bill of Rights is not needed since 8 states already had their own.
  7. 7. Who were the Anti-Federalists? (Write this Down)  Opposed the new Constitution  Leader: Thomas Jefferson  Mostly farmers and some business, city men.  Favored a weak central government (more power to the states).  Wanted a Bill of Rights included in the Constitution.
  8. 8. Key Arguments of the Anti-Federalists  Claimed the new Constitution was extralegal (not permitted by law).  Because it was made in secret, delegates were only supposed to amend (change) Articles, not create new one.  The Constitution took important powers from the states.  Wanted a Bill of Rights included in the Constitution a strong national government might take away people’s rights if they did not put this in.
  9. 9. Ratification  Federalists finally promised to add a Bill of Rights.  The Federalists also published the Federalists Papers that further convince people to vote for the new Constitution.  The states all ratified the new US Constitution.  The new government began in 1789.
