The Federalist Papers are a collection of 85 guest editorials printed in American newspapers in 1787--1788, written by James Madison, Alexander Hamilton, and John Jay to persuade Americans to ratify the newly written Constitution. They are persuasive evidence of the Intent of the Framers and the Original Meaning of the Constitution, cited hundreds of times by Courts and highly relevant to this day.
