As soon as the Constitutional Convention was concluded in September 1787, the great debate began. As we study a collection of the Federalist and Anti-Federalist letters, we will get a clearer picture of the intent of our Founding Fathers.
What you'll find as you go is that the "Federalist Papers" are numbered - there are 85 essays in that grouping. There is no set collection of "Anti-Federalist" essays.
We have sectioned these writings for easy studying. They are set up for you to read one document a day - five days a week. In less than a year, you'll have read through all of these Federalist and Anti-Federalist documents.
Here's a Wiki page that lists the pseudonyms used in the debate.
