This chapter discusses the gendered nature of male political socialization and the crucial role of gender in shaping the development of partisan politics. Focusing on a group of young Philadelphia Federalists, it examines the coming-of-age experience of this third generation of Federalists to explore the relationship between masculine identities and Federalist persuasion. Drawing on Thomas Pleasants' diary, the chapter demonstrates that every aspect of their lives proved to be a testing ground for their evolving sense of themselves as men and Federalists.

Keywords:   socialization, gender, partisan politics, Philadelphia, Federalists, masculine identities, Thomas Pleasant
