The U.S. Constitution and the Federalist v. Antifederalist Papers
“But what is government itself, but the greatest of all reflections on human nature? If men were angels, no government would be necessary. If angels were to govern men, neither external nor internal controls on government would be necessary.”
– James Madison
On September 17, 1787, 39 of the 55 delegates from 12 of the 13 states signed the newly crafted U.S. Constitution in Independence Hall, Philadelphia, PA. (O’Connor & Sabato, 2019) The new U.S. Constitution was approved by the United States’ current government, the Congress of the Confederation and a resolution was sent to all 13 states that sought ratification of the Constitution: Article VII: “The Ratification of the Conventions of nine States, shall be sufficient for the Establishment of this Constitution between the States so ratifying the Same.” (U.S. Constitution, Article VII)
Now, it was up to the individual states to either ratify or not ratify the new Constitution.
As each of the thirteen colonial legislatures sought to ratify the U.S. Constitution, newspapers published the U.S. Constitution so that ‘we the people’ could understand and debate the new, governmental document. During the fall of 1787 and into the summer of 1788, newspapers published hundreds of letters to the editor penned by individual citizens that argued for and against ratification.
Additionally, the debate over ratification of the new U.S. Constitution saw the emergence of two, opposed political parties composed of this nation’s founding fathers: the Federalists and Anti-Federalists. The Federalists advocated for the adoption of the new Constitution; the Anti-Federalists opposed ratification of the new Constitution. Members from both parties produced newspaper articles that explained their ideological rationale for or against ratification.
