Howdy! We hope you will take a moment to stop by Constituting America and participate in our
90 in 90 = 180: History Holds the Key to the Future – National Conversational Blog/Reading of the U.S. Constitution and the Federalist Papers!

Each day we read a new Federalist Paper, and share our thoughts about its relevancy today with a guest Constitutional Scholar.

Thomas Jefferson called the Federalist, “the best commentary on the principles of government, which ever was written.” Join us and find out why!!
