Federalists and Antifederalists

Antifederalist viewpoint

They were less organized and less unified than the Federalists.

Their core consisted of farmers and planters.

Agreed on one central issue: they distrusted any central authority

Believed strong national government would lead to a kind of tyranny like the kind they fought against in the Revolution.

Worried that the government would abuse both states’ rights and individual liberties

Thought the new government favored the educated and wealthy over ordinary people

Led by Samuel Adams, Patrick Henry, and Richard Henry Lee

Robert Yates, New York delegate, wrote anti-Constitution essays under the name Brutus.
