Despite common misconceptions, the American Revolution was not a straightforward, linear history. Dozens of contentious events led up to the Declaration of Independence in 1776, and after the Revolutionary War in 1783, a series of new political challenges became focal points for the Founding Fathers and their new nation. The Federalist, a collection of 85 articles published under the pseudonym “Publius” by Alexander Hamilton, John Jay, and James Madison, are some of the most important texts from this era of debate that would define our Constitution. In these articles, the authors present fundamental arguments about our government to the public, including our court systems’ judicial review processes, our executive branch having one chief executive, and several justifications for our checks and balances at various tiers in our governmental structure. Without The Federalist, public support for the Constitution would not have occurred, and our political systems would look very different today.
