The Federalist Papers Lecture


“The Federalist Papers” an informative lecture at the Bridgewater Public Library presented by Historian and Professor Dr. Gary Hylander on Tuesday, September 12th at 6:30 pm.

Published between 1787 and 1788, the Federalist Papers are the most important American contribution to political theory. Drafted by Madison, Hamilton, and Jay, the Federalist Papers were written to gain support for the ratification of a new Constitution and to discredit the objections of the Anti-Federalists to the Constitution who feared its centralizing powers and national authority. In the Federalist Papers, Madison, Hamilton, and Jay explained the principles of the new Constitution and carefully outlined how it would work to improve the lives of “We the People” and serve to create “a more perfect Union.”

Dr. Gary Hylander is currently an independent scholar who specializes as a presidential historian, a pedagogical specialist for the National Endowment for the Humanities and professor of history.

The lecture begins at 6:30 p.m. at the Bridgewater Public Library, is free and open to the public.
