Group of people who were not happy with the Constitution?

I think it's Federalists

  • Social Studies -

    Not all early Americans were happy with the Constitution. Democratic-Republicans, also known as Anti-Federalists, opposed the Constitution because they feared the Federal Government would gain too much power... much like King George from whom they had just fled! They insisted the Bill of Rights be added to the Constitution to protect the individual rights of citizens, and asked that a very strict version of the Constitution be followed, allowing little wiggle room for growth of Federal Powers!
