The Federalists vs The Anti-Federalist 
Journal Set-Up Politcal Factions



Founding Fathers in 1787 did not envision the existence of political parties because organized opposition seemed disloyal and against spirit of national unity. No national political party had ever existed in America before Washington's administration.

Factions had existed only over special issues - Federalists & Anti-federalists. But factions were not parties. Faction politics tend to be temporary. They are generally local, regional, or special interest oriented. Factional politics usually revolve around the personality of one or two important leaders. A faction forms around one or two issues, and then dissolves with the achievement of one or two

political goals.

Who were the Anti-Federalists









The Federalist Papers were a series of 85 essays written by Alexander Hamilton, John Jay, and James Madison, under the pen-name "Publius," that appeared in New York newspapers (primarily, the Independent Journal and the New York Packet) from October 1787 to May 1788. The essays urged New York delegates to ratify the Constitution. In 1788, the essays were published in a bound volume entitled the Federalist and eventually became known as the Federalist Papers.
