While the Antifederalists lost the battle against Constitutional ratification, they won the war by getting the Bill of Rights into the Constitution as its first ten amendments. In restraining the national government's power and guaranteeing individual liberties, the Bill of Rights has come to dominate modern U.S. politics and law. Volume 1 features biographies of 140 prominent Antifederalists, including Samuel Adams, George Clinton, Mercy Otis Warren, and James Monroe. The entries on each Antifederalist contains details about personal and public life, early political career, revolutionary activities, friends and enemies, basis for opposing the Constitution, and subsequent historical reputation. Volume 2 collects important speeches and writings of the Antifederalists, along with annotations to help the reader place these articles into their historical context. Many of these documents are difficult to find, and have never before been collected into one edition. Primary documents include: major pamphlets; broadsides; newspaper articles; and speeches delivered in state legislatures, at the Philadelphia convention, and in state ratification conventions

"For the leaders included in this volume, the Civil War constituted the major event of their lives. For most of them, their participation in that war was also the major activity and accomplishment of their busy and important careers. ... Each of them, in the many different kinds of service needed in modern warfare, made a major impact on his or her respective side's war effort. All forty-seven, it will be shown, deserve to be called important leaders of the Civil War."--Preface, p. [xi]

"During the Civil War, many southerners expressed serious opposition to secession and openly entreated their fellow southerners to maintain support for the Union. A number of these unionists actively opposed the Confederacy while remaining within its borders; others fled their homes and the South, becoming exiles in northern cities and the border slave states. The southern unionist leaders used their oral and written communication skills to proclaim their opposition to the Confederacy, often producing pamphlets that circulated in the North, in the border states, and in the heart of the Confederacy itself.

The election of Abraham Lincoln as president in 1860 initiated a heated debate throughout the South about what Republican control of the federal government would mean for the slaveholding states.
