"The Federalist Papers" are a series of 85 articles or essays advocating the ratification of the United States Constitution. Seventy-seven of the essays were published serially in "The Independent Journal" and "The New York Packet" between October 1787 and August 1788. A compilation of these and eight others, called "The Federalist; or, The New Constitution," was published in two volumes in 1788 by J. and A. McLean. The series' correct title is "The Federalist"; the title "The Federalist Papers" did not emerge until the twentieth century.
