As debates for the ratification of the Constitution began, newspaper articles began criticizing the Constitution. This chapter discusses the political philosophy behind James Madison's essays when he helped Alexander Hamilton in defense of the ratification of the Constitution. Rumors of Madison's involvement in The Federalist began to circulate immediately but his authorship was not publicly acknowledged until 1792.
