The Enduring Significance of the Anti-Federalists From today’s perspective, the Federalists and AntiFederalists both appear to have been patriotic Americans who had two different visions of the kind of regime that Americans should strive to create. While the Federalists may have won the war over the Constitution, the Anti-Federalist vision of politics has been of enduring significance, and Anti-Federalist ideas remain relevant to contemporary debates about American political life. The historian Saul Cornell has argued that while ‘‘the structure of American government was crafted by the Federalists, the spirit of American politics has more often been inspired by the Antifederalists’’ (1999, 1).
