When was the first political party division in the US?

Thomas Jefferson once said that two people was a law firm and three a political party. My point is that from the very start of the nation political parties were divided. In 1789 there were the Federalist and the anti federalist. Washington warned that political parties were dangerous because they would only be concerned with reelection and maintaining power. He was right. So, the answer to your question is that there has always been fractions within the parties and they have become what we have today.

Which president was the only president to serve as a Federalist Party member?

John Adams, the second president, was the only Federalist Party president. When George Washington became president there were no political parties. As time went on different people began to believe that the federal government should be strong and these believers were known as Federalists. Others believed the federal government should not be strong and they became known as Democratic Republicans. George Washington certainly believed in a strong central government and in the Federalist position, but there was no Federalist Party just yet. That is why he was not a "Federalist Party" president. As it became clear that Washington would not seek a third term, the people of the different thoughts became more organized into parties. John Adams hated political parties, but he was backed by the Federalists and ran for President as a Federalist and won. After Adams served, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison James Monroe served two terms each as members of the Democratic Republican party. By this time the Federalist Party all but disappeared. John Quincy Adams ran for president as a member of the National Republican party.

Why did the federalist write the federalist papers?

Hamilton wrote his 51 essays of the Federalist Papers, and devised the idea, because he was becoming increasingly worried over the fate of the new Constitution. New York was a battalion of anti-Federalists who were bent on not ratifying the Constitution. Hamilton wrote the Federalist Papers, with James Madison, to provide a breakdown of the Constitution and why it would protect people's rights. The Federalist of the Federalist Papers is NOT the same Federalist of the Federalist Party. Federalists in the Federalist Papers really just means someone who supports the Constitution.
