  4. 4. Summary of PartySummary of Party In the party, Federalists vs. Republicans, two groups of people try to prove that their way of government is the right way. The leader of the Federalists was Thomas Jefferson and the leader of the Republicans was Alexander Hamilton. The Federalists wanted a strong central government and a loose interpretation of the Constitution. The Republicans favored states' rights more than a central government and they had a strict interpretation of the Constitution. Another big difference was that the Federalists encouraged commerce and manufacturing. While the Republicans preferred agriculture. These two sides had totally different points of view of how the country should be run. What do you think would be best for the time era 1780-1801?
  5. 5. Federalists/Anti-FederalistsFederalists/Anti-Federalists Federalist Arguments Anti-Federalist Arguments •A listing of rights can be a dangerous thing. If the national government were to protect specific listed rights, what would stop it from violating rights other than the listed ones? Since we can’t list all the rights, the Federalists argued that it’s better to list none at all. •The separation of powers into three independent branches protected the rights of the people. Each branch represents a different aspect of the people, and because all three branches are equal, no one group can assume control over another. •The Constitution gave too much power to the national government at the expense of the state governments. •There was no Bill of Rights. •The national government could maintain an army in peacetime •Congress, because of the “necessary and proper clause,” wielded too much power. •The executive branch held too much power.

  7. 7. How the Federalist PartyHow the Federalist Party was Formedwas Formed • The Federalist Party appeared during George Washington’s 2nd term as President as a result of the Jay Treaty • The Federalist Party wasn’t started because of the differences between Jefferson and Hamilton, but Hamilton’s views did strengthen the party. • The Northeast states and New Jersey, Delaware, and Maryland supported the Federalist Party because they were dominated with commercial interests. • When John Adams was elected, he let George Washington’s Cabinet stay as his Cabinet. The Cabinet members were strong Federalists.
  8. 8. How the Republican PartyHow the Republican Party was Formedwas Formed Madison started the party among Congressmen in Philadelphia as the Republican Party. Then he, Jefferson, and others reached out to include state and local leaders around the country, especially New York and the South. The precise date of founding is undecided, but around 1792 is a reasonable estimate; some time in the early 1790s is certain. The new party set up newspapers that made withering critiques of Hamilton’s ideas, extolled the yeomen farmer, argued for strict construction of the Constitution, supported neutral relations with European powers, and called for stronger state governments than the Federalist Party was proposing.

  12. 12. Biography of AlexanderBiography of Alexander HamiltonHamilton Alexander Hamilton, an individual with strong thoughts about a central government, had a tremendous influence on the first political party. He was born in 1757 on the island of Nexis, British West Indies to a poor Scottish merchant. His mother provided for his education and that's how he learned to speak French. Hamilton had an ambition and urge for intelligence, especially government. At fifteen years old he attended Barber's Academy at Elizabethtown and met William Livingston, who would later become a signer of the Constitution. In the year of 1773, while Hamilton was at King's College, the Revolution put his studies to a halt. During this time he wrote several pro- Whig pamphlets and fought in principal campaigns. Then he join George Washington's staff as a secretary. In 1780, Alexander Hamilton married New Yorker Elizabeth Schuyler. In 1782-83, he was elected to the Continental Congress because of his interests in strengthening the central government. Since he wanted a successful campaign, he got together with John Jay and James Madison to write the Federalist Papers in 1787. As a result, his work paid off and he won the position of Secretary of the Treasury. While he was at this position he began to organize the country's finances into a powerful, industrial nation. He did this by establishing a national bank, funding the national debt, and encouraged manufacturing. Hamilton's policies brought him into conflict with Jefferson and Madison. They were against his pro-business economic program, sympathy for Great Britain, and disdain for the common man. This was the start of the Federalists against Democratic-Republicans. In 1795, Hamilton had to leave his office for family and financial needs. Hamilton wanted to prevent John Adams from winning the presidential election in 1796, but he failed. In the next presidential debate, between Aaron Burr and Jefferson, Hamilton supported Jefferson. Burr challenged Hamilton to a duel held in Weehawken, New Jersey. On July twelfth, Hamilton died from severe injuries.
  13. 13. Federalist Papers Info.Federalist Papers Info. • The Federalist Papers are a series of 85 articles supporting the ratification of the United States Constitution. Seventy-seven of the essays were published in The Independent Journal and The New York Packet between October 1787 and August 1788 . A compilation of these and eight others, called The Federalist, was published in 1788 by J. and A. McLean. • The Federalist Papers serve as a primary source for interpretation of the Constitution, as they outline the philosophy and motivation of the proposed system of government. The authors of the Federalist Papers wanted to both influence the votes in favor of ratification and form future interpretations of the Constitution.

George Washington warns the people a number of things not to do, which include the dangers of political parties. He states, “ …[to] warn you in the most solemn manner against the baneful effects of the spirit of party, generally.” Wahington worried about growing political conflicts that were within the nation. He believed that conflicts between political parties weakened the government and did no help it. Washington thought political unity was the key to a successful nation, and warned the nation to work out its differences and protect its independence. Besides warning the people about political parties, he also warned them about not to make permanent contracts between foreign nations as for it could cause a war based on taking sides, and to avoid too much public debt and borrowing money. George Washington’s advice is proved to be a logical way to run a country. 20. The Federalist Papers, written by Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay, wrote the Federalist Papers in order to convince the public to support the Constitution, as well as the Federalist Papers. It was one of the most important defenses toward the Constitution during the ratification process. For the Constitution to be ratified nine states had to approve of it, so as a result the Federalist Papers helped convey the public to ratify the Constitution. Finally, Madison, along with several other federalists, were able to convince Virginia to ratify the Constitution.
