Federal judges, when interpreting the U.S. Constitution, frequently use the Federalist Papers as a contemporary account of the intentions of the Framers. Justice Thomas Saylor of the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania offers a primer on the famous articles and essays written by Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay to win public favor and persuade state legislatures to ratify the Constitution.
