Federalists
1. Most federalist lived in New Jersey, Delaware, Pennsylvania, Georgia and Connecticut. There were
also many more who lived in the Middle States. The federalists owned large parcels of land, were
bankers and businessmen.
2. The federalists believed that the new constitution was the ultimate backbone to the growth of the
economy since it allowed the economic participation with other continents especially Britain.
3. The federalist believed political parties to be self-serving factions detrimental to the good of
government. The federalist therefore believed in one central party that served all.
4. The issue of slavery for the federalists was an opportunity for them to truly emphasize their solid
