Describe the disputes that occurred from the 1780s through the 1830s between advocates of states’ rights and those in favor of a more robust federal government.

In 1776, American colonists declared their independence from Great Britain. Almost
immediately, questions about the size and form of the nation’s new government divided the
colonists. How did events in the 1780s lead to the replacement of the Articles of Confederation
with the Constitution? How did the two forms of government differ? Still, Americans remained
divided. Describe the disputes that occurred from the 1780s through the 1830s between
advocates of states’ rights and those in favor of a more robust federal government. In answering
this question, be sure to focus on economic issues, state versus federal power, and the size and
role of government more generally. What about democracy? Did “We the People” include
women, immigrants, and Native Americans? Explain.
