History and Political Science FEDERALISM

Project descriptionThe issue of state versus federal power continues to be debated by Americans. You may remember that Bob Dole tried to make federal power an issue in the 1996 presidential campaign by always carrying around a copy of the tenth amendment. It worked as a symbol of his campaign promise to return as much power as possible to the states. Most famously, the American Civil War brought the issues of state power to the forefront.
