Chapter 6: Federalists and Republicans 1789-1816

Section One:

The New Government  The Bill of Rights was added in 1791  10 Amendments were added because of a promise to

anti-federalists to protect basic rights  Freedom of Religion, Speech, Fair Trials, etc  The 10th Amendment= whatever is not stated in Constitution is power given to the states

First President  George Washington

 The only President to

win by unanimous vote

Institutions of Power  President Washington established a Cabinet, an

advisory team    

Secretary/Department of State Secretary/Department of Treasury Attorney General Secretary/Department of War

 The judicial branch was organized, establishing the

Supreme Court

Department of State  Thomas Jefferson

 Deals with matters of

foreign affairs

Department of the Treasury  Alexander Hamilton

 Deals with financial and

monetary matters of the country

Financing the Government was Top Priority  Needed REVENUE= Needed MONEY  Created the Tariff of 1789  Supported by A. Hamilton  A Tariff is a tax on imported and/or exported goods  Hurt the South the most

The Right to Borrow Money  Hamilton believed we

needed to be able to borrow money to pay off the debt  Had Congress take on all debt from the war  Federal government created BONDS- paper notes promising to repay the debt in exchange for money

Opposition to Bonds  They were not worth their value  Opposition led by Madison  Felt South was being hurt- they were losing more

money than the North through bonds  Feared North would dominate the South

Another Compromise  Jefferson, Madison, and Hamilton agreed on a

plan 1. 2.

 By

Madison and the South supported the plan The Capital was to be moved South from New York (modern day Washington DC)

moving Capital South, the South felt this would offset the economic and political advantages of the North

The Bank of the United States  Or B.U.S.  Proposed by Hamilton- created by Congress  B.U.S. would:

create a common currency 2. promote trade 3. encourage investment 4. stimulate economic growth 1.

Not Everyone Liked the B.U.S.  Again, South thought the

North would benefit the most  James Madison thought it violated the Constitution- nowhere did it say the federal government could create a bank

Get on the B.U.S.  Washington signs the bill- lasts next 20 years  Thought

it did NOT violate the Constitution Article I, Sec 8 federal government had power “to make all laws which shall be necessary and proper” The Necessary and Proper Clause created IMPLIED POWERSThey are powers that you have because it is necessary to do the job, but not stated in Constitution

The Whiskey Rebellion  Hamilton also believed in taxing the people  He taxed whiskey  Enraged Western farmers  In 1794, rebellion erupted  Claimed “taxation without representation”

Outcome of the Whiskey Rebellion  Washington ordered 15,000 troops to stop rebellion  They were, in fact represented  The use of force by government on its own people

worried some

A Change in Name Federalists

Hamilton  Wanted to work on industrialization

federalists (Madison changes)  Also called Republicans  Will in the 1800s become the Democratic party  Wanted to focus on agriculture (agrarianism)

The Election of 1800  Between Adams, Jefferson, Burr, Pinckney, and Jay  Came down to Adams and Jefferson, but no one had
