  • Alexander Hamilton along with James Madison and John Jay collaborated to compose a series of essays in defense of the new US Constitution originally titled “The Federalist”. The Constitution had been penned on September 17, 1787 in Philadelphia, PA the same city The Declaration of Independence was written. After the Constitution was introduced it was hotly debated and in many cases outright denounced by members of congress. Hamilton, Madison, and Jay sought to champion the document through their writing. The Federalist Papers, as they came to be known, were originally only meant to consist of 25 total articles with the work divided evenly among the three men. When all was said and done 85 essays were written in less than 6 months’ time. And in the words of Lin-Manuel Miranda, the writer of “Hamilton The Musical”:

    John Jay got sick after writing five. James Madison wrote twenty-nine. Hamilton wrote the other fifty-one!
