About the Author

Alexander Hamilton (1755-1804) was an American statesman, legal scholar, military leader, lawyer, and economist. After serving as a senior aide to General George Washington during the American Revolutionary War, Hamilton practiced law and founded the Bank of New York. As the need to replace the confederal government became apparent, Hamilton advocated for a Constitutional Convention to be held in Philadelphia. Following the convention, Hamilton wrote 51 of the 85 Federalist Papers, essays and articles intended to promote the ratification of the new Constitution. He then served as head of the Treasury Department under President Washington, later campaigning for Thomas Jefferson's presidential nomination. In 1804, following a dispute, Hamilton was killed in a duel by politician and lawyer Aaron Burr.

Fourth president of the United States James Madison (1751-1836) is considered the "Father of the Constitution" because of his integral role in drafting and promoting the Constitution and Bill of Rights.
A statesman, diplomat, abolitionist, and Founding Father, John Jay (1745-1829) served as the first chief justice of the United States, the second governor of New York, and played a pivotal role in ratifying the US Constitution.
