     The Federalist Papers were a series of articles written under the pen name of Publius by Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay. Madison, widely recognized as the Father of the Constitution, would later go on to become President of the United States. Jay would become the first Chief Justice of the US supreme Court. Hamilton would serve in the Cabinet and become a major force in setting economic policy for the US.
 
     No serious student of the Constitution can be without both sides of the story. Some AntiFederalist prophecies have strangely come true. The entire purpose of The Federalist Papers was to gain popular support for the then-proposed Constitution. Some would call it the most significant public-relations campaign in history; it is, in fact, studied in many public relations classes as a prime example of how to conduct a successful campaign.
 
     These documents cannot be considered all inclusive of the total debate during the days of our Constitutional Convention. Many other pro and con pieces appeared in newspapers, in the state ratification conventions, in pamphlets, books, and other sources of the time.
 
   These Federalist writings are organized to coincide with the AntiFederalist Papers.
 
 
 
     In contrast to Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay who supported ratification of the Constitution of the united States, many others did not. While the former's works were more logically organized (and eventually won the debate), the AntiFederalist writers were nonetheless articulate. Serious questions were raised which eventually led to some of the Federalist writings that served as answers to allegations of the AntiFederalists.
 
     No serious student of the Constitution can be without both sides of the story. Some AntiFederalist prophecies have strangely come true. Writings by "Brutus" and "A Federal Farmer," particularly relating to the "necessary and proper" clause (Article I, Section 8, Clause 18), view the future under an unrestrained Congress. Although the "necessary and proper" clause was never meant to be a blanket grant of power, over the years, as the intentions of the Founding Fathers have passed further and further from our memories, all three branches of the federal government have assumed things that simply do not -and never did -exist. As the States have forgotten how to be a check against a Congress run amok, things are getting worse.
 
     These documents, like the Federalist Papers themselves, cannot be considered all inclusive. Many other pro and con pieces appeared in newspapers, in the state ratification conventions, in pamphlets, books, and other sources of the time.
 
   Although not complete, these are considered the premier AntiFederalist writings, organized somewhat to coincide with the Federalist Papers.
