In 1791 the first 10 amendments, bill of rights, was added. First 8 were protecting individual rights 9 said that people had rights other than the ones listed 10 said any power not specifically given to the federal government belonged to the states

6 Financing the Government
The government needed more money to operate James Madison and Alexander Hamilton came up with two different plans

7 Madison felt the government should tax imports from other countries
Tariff of 1789 – importers paid 5% of their cargo This angered southern farmers

8 Hamilton wanted to sell bonds to borrow money
This also didn’t help southerners

9 As a compromise to the plan southerners were promised the new capitol would be placed in the south called the District of Columbia

10 National Bank Hamilton also asked for a National Bank
To give loans to the government and individuals To issue paper money Encourage trade Stimulate economic growth

11 Madison felt the bank was not within the Congress’ enumerated powers – specifically listed in the constitution Hamilton argued it was an implied power – from article 1 sec 8

12 Whiskey Rebellion Hamilton wanted to tax whiskey
Western farmers rebelled Washington sent 13,000 troops to stop it

19 Pinckney’s Treaty Thomas Pinckney negotiated a treaty with Spain in 1795 It gave the U.S. rights to navigate the Mississippi River and to deposit goods at the port of New Orleans.

20 Westward Expansion In 1792 Kentucky became the 14th state
Four years later Tennessee became a state

Federalist pushed 4 laws through Congress known as the Alien and Sedition Acts

27 The first 3 said aliens in the country could not be citizens for 14 years, most of whom voted most often for the Republicans The last prevented sedition, or incitement to rebellion and speaking out against government

28 The Republican legislatures of Kentucky and Virginia passed resolutions criticizing the Alien and Sedition Acts Written secretly by Jefferson and Madison they said states created the Constitution and so had the power to say if a law was unconstitutional

29 Interposition Virginia’s resolution said that states could interpose between the federal government and people and stop illegal action against the people

30 Nullification Kentucky resolution said that if the federal government passed an unconstitutional law the states had a right to nullify the law or declare it invalid

31 Election of 1800 Showed a flaw in the system
Thomas Jefferson and Aaron Burr each got the same number of electoral votes
