The Colonial Period

Who wrote the Federalist Papers?

The Constitution was a brave new document in the brave old world, and it certainly got people jazzed about the future of the nation. Still, there was a bit of public relations work to do, so a group of fine upstanding chaps wrote a slew of articles, both separately and together, to support the passage of the Constitution. They were:

  • Publius (somewhat of a pen name for the gang)
  • (James) Madison
  • (Alexander) Hamilton
  • (John) Jay
Publius wrote the Federalist Papers

Of the group, it was Hamilton who was the heavy hitter, or at least the fastest writer.
