The Federalists were those people who supported the new Constitution of the United States. They believed in a strong national government with powers over the states. They did not support the states' rights beliefs of the followers of Thomas Jefferson. They favored protective tariffs to enable American industry to develop, favored collection of taxes from the states and favored a strong military to protect the nation.
