Storyboard Text

  • When the Constitution was in the process of being ratified, there were two different groups that were on different sides of an argument.
  • and the Anti-Federalists.
  • The Federalists,
  • These two groups had very different ideas about what should happen to the Constitution.
  • The federalists wanted a strong government and strong executive branch,
  • but the Anti-Federalists wanted a weaker central government.
  • However, the federalists didn't want a Bill of Rights —they thought the constitution was sufficient,
  • and the anti-federalists demanded a bill of rights. There was a fight between the two groups.
  • The anti-federalists wanted the protection of the Bill of Rights, the federalists thought a strong government was protection enough.
  • The Federal Government had a debate about the powers the state had.
  • *The Bill of Rights protects freedom of speech, freedom of religion, the right to keep and bear arms, the freedom of assembly and the freedom to petition.
  • The anti-federalists wanted to protect their individual rights with the Bill of Rights.
  • The federalists wanted a government to decide their rights for them, even if they weren't fair.
  • The anti-federalists won and the Bill of Rights was passed. The Bill of Rights was first passed with 12 amendments, but on December 15, 1791, 10 more amendments were passed.
