  • Move Capital
  • Hamilton - Strong Central Government
  • Jefferson - Strong State Governments
  • The states decided to move the capital. The south didn’t like the capital being so far north because they thought that gave the north to much power. The capital was moved to Philadelphia for ten years while they built Washington D.C over a swampy ground. They chose the new location because there was a river there, and part of Washington D.C. is in the north (Maryland) and part of Washington D.C. was in the south. (Virginia)
