Alexander Hamilton
Your Constitution I.Q.

In 1787, Alexander Hamilton launched a campaign to convince the newly united states to adopt a Constitution. Hamilton and a few colleagues passionately argued the cause in a series of essays known as The Federalist. The Constitution that resulted became the law of the land that our nation has relied on for more than 200 years to safeguard rights and define our government. The basics of what Hamilton explained and exhorted in The Federalist have become part of the national character.
