Description: Product Description
Originally entitled "The Federalist", "The Federalist Papers" were written and published in the years 1787 and 1788 - a time when furious arguments were raging regarding the way America should be governed. This work made it clear that the intent was to persuade New York voters to ratify the constitution that had been proposed. What was NOT made clear, however, was who wrote "The Federalist Papers", since all 85 of the essays were simply signed "PUBLIUS". Although many guessed that James Madison, Alexander Hamilton and John Jay were the likely authors of the essays, it was not until Hamilton's death in 1804 that this was verified. A list was found among Hamilton's papers stating that he had penned 52, James Madison 28, and John Jay the remaining 5 essays. The name "The Federalist Papers" was not adopted until the 20th century. Whatever title you want to use, it remains the quintessential work for interpreting the Constitution of the United States. In this book we are including the Declaration of Independence, The Constitution, and the Bill of Rights in order to provide a complete overview of the important documents that were so intricately woven into the lives of our founding fathers.
