Best Answer

Anti-federalists opposed the ratification of the Constitution in 1787 - 89. They rejected the idea of a strong, central government. They feared that states, and mostly individuals, would lose their rights, and thus demanded that a Bill of Rights be created before they would even consider ratifying the Constitution.
