The Federalist Party organized by George Washington was the party that saw the problems the Federal Government was having under the extreme limited powers of the Article of Confederation and called the Annapolis Convention and the attendance was low due to travel conditions so the Constitutional Convention was call the following year in Philadelphia. Three men who composed 85 articles in the New Your News Papers under the name Publius [referred to as the Federalist papers] were the men pictured below on this page. There articles as well as their counter part in Philadelphia, Tench Coxe, who wrote articles in the Philadelphia Papers under the name A Pennsylvanian were picked up and reprinted across the nation and contributed greatly to the adoption of the US Constitution when they added the Bill of Rights to it to settle many of the fears of the States at the Convention.
“ Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom of Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops that can be, on any pretense, raised in the United States. ” — Noah Webster, An Examination into the Leading Principles of the Federal Constitution, 1787
