The Federal Party was founded on October 1, 1899. It was formed by Luis Muñoz Rivera and other former members of the Autonomist Party during US military rule of the island following the Spanish–American War. The Federal Party supported greater self-rule for the island.
In February 1904, the party was reconstituted as the Union of Puerto Rico, or Union Party.
