The Federalist Papers are a series of 85 articles written in support of the new U.S. constitution which replaced the very flawed Articles of Confederation. Published under pseudonyms, authors Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay spelled out the reasons why the new constitution should be ratified. According to historian Richard B. Morris, they are an "incomparable exposition of the Constitution, a classic in political science unsurpassed in both breadth and depth by the product of any later American writer."

The Federalist Papers are a natural choice for inclusion in the American DNA section of the 'United States Constitution' app found in the Android Market. I did not include it because it would have doubled the size of the that app and I want to maintain a little size discipline, so to speak. So after many request I created 'The Federalist Papers'. It's not annotated like the Constitution, but it does contain a search feature which should make personal analysis a little easier. I'll be making improvements as I go of course, so for now here you go.

    Only rated this app to offset stupid below (the guy complaining that he wasn't able to compel a person to do his bidding regarding the anti federalist papers)

    Outstanding. The remedy for the delusional victimhood and government dependence that is ruining the USA. Much appreciated.

    Essential read to fully understand the constitution which is essential we do so we can preserve this sacred document. Thank you. Only recommendation I have is add a highlight option that can be used to highlight text.
