This category contains people and groups that were part of the first American Anti-Federalist movement of the 1780s. This movement opposed the creation of a stronger national government under the Constitution. This is a distinct meaning from anti-Federlalist as the term applies to the 1790s, where it applied to those who opposed the policies of the Washington Administration and to the nascent political party that later became known as the Democratic-Republican Party.
