A Look Into History: Nathaniel Macon

Nathaniel Macon was a Democratic-Republican who served as America's 6th Speaker of the House. Macon was opposed to the U.S. Constitution, and spent his whole career making the federal government weaker. He was opposed to the navy, Alexander Hamilton, the Federalist party, protective tariffs, among many others. He was one of Congress' first members who constantly voted "no" on almost every vote.
