Storyboard Text

  • Some important federalists of the Constitutional Convention- Hamilton, Jay, Madison, Washington, Franklin
  • Remember what happened with the Articles of Confederation? We don't want that to happen again, so we want to give the central government more power this time.
  • Some important anti-federalists- Henry, Adams, Mason, Lee, Yates, Monroe, Gerry
  • If we put the power to tax into the wrong hands, then they could bring the country down with tyranny!
  • OK, we agree to pass a Bill of Rights, but only if you agree to ratify the Constitution.
  • Alright. We agree.
  • The federalists and anti-federalists argued over how to approve the Constitution. Federalists wanted it ratified because they thought that a strong central gov't would unite the states into a republic.
  • Anti-federalists were opposed to ratification. They didn't want to give the central government too much power because they thought that it would ruin the country with taxes.
  • Anti-federalists were against ratification because they thought too strong of a central government would ruin the country with taxes.
