Why did the objection of the constitution lead to the bill of rights?

The Anti-Federalists were extremely concerned that a strong central government would result in severely weakened state power. Therefore, in order to make sure that the people retained some rights that were protected from national government intrusion, the Anti-Feds demanded that a Bill of Rights be added to the Constitution. Without the addition of the Bill of Rights, the Anti-Feds would have rejected the Constitution in its entirety and it would have not survived ratification. Therefore, because they rejected the Constitution because it originally lacked a Bill of Rights, a Bill of Rights was added to appease them.
