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.
