The next book that I am going to blog about is a bit different than the rest of the books. For the 2016 Reading Challenge 1700-1799 era I chose the Federalist Papers. This book is not a story. This book has no characters. Instead this book is a collection eighty-five articles written by: John Jay, Alexander Hamilton, and James Madison. These papers were written to support the ratification of the U.S. Constitution.
There is no real synopsis to this historic papers. We are introduced to several subjects in America that we hold dear. The concept of power and where it should be held. Foreign relations, as well as, the relations between states that should remain peaceful. However, if things go awry there will be consequences for those who do not comply. Congress with the House of Representatives and the Senate with what needs to happen and who needs to vote. John Jay, Alexander Hamilton, and James Madison introduced a reason behind the laws that were being introduced to America in 1788 when the country was just making peace for itself.
