The earliest years of the American republic are often referred to as the Federal period. In the years just after American Independence, those who advocated for the ratification of the Constitution and a vigorous national government were called Federalists. They were particularly strong in New England.
Today, more than 200 years later, members of the Federalist Society at Old Sturbridge Village are still leaders—major supporters of the museum and advocates for the importance of history in our lives today.
