About The Federalist Papers
The Federalist Papers are a series of articles written under the pen name of Publius by Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay. The Federalist Papers were written to garner support for the then-proposed Constitution which would replace the Articles of Confederation. Some people consider The Federalist Papers to be the most significant public-relations campaign in history; it is studied in many public relations classes as a prime example of how to conduct a successful PR campaign.
James Madison, considered to be the Father of the Constitution, became the fourth President of the United States (1809-1817). John Jay went on to become the first Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court. Alexander Hamilton became the first Secretary of the Treasury of the new United States.
