Federalist No. 45 – James Madison
Primary source document written by James Madison designed to promote ratification of the Constitution. In this essay, Madison focuses on the fact that the Constitution only grants limited powers to the federal government, leaving the majority of the power to the state governments. This was quite persuasive for many; especially considering the recent American Revolution was fought to defeat a powerful, centralized government. The document is followed by 4 analysis questions perfect for class discussion and critical thinking.
