America got a new constitution. The historic Bill
of Rights guaranteeing individual rights for the first time in the
history of liberty was added to the new constitution. Though the
U.S. has a written constitution, it has, over the years, through
custom and usage evolved an unwritten constitution.
Alexander Hamilton presented his famous federalist
papers, where he advocated his views on the economy and the vision
to build America’s industries. These papers cause a lot of debate
in the Congress over the need for a bank and the issue of tariffs
to protect industries in the country. This period also saw the rise
of political parties with distinct views on the polity and economy
of the country.
