The list author says: "The non-profit Library of America has for nearly thirty years been making the best of American literature and thought accessible in uniform, moderately priced volumes. Among the many wonderful works of the LOA is the "American Founders Series". This series consists of thirteen volumes of original source material regarding the birth and early years of the United States. Most volumes are devoted to the writings of the Founders, but some volumes cover events. Demanding to read, this series offers an unparalleled way for the nonspecialist reader to read and engage with historical sources. Each volume is edited by a distinguished scholar and includes a chronology and brief notes in addition to extensive textual material. The following is a list of the volumes of the series."
"Coauthor of the Federalist Papers with Madison, the two Founders views diverged markedly. Hamilton was an advocate for a strong central government and Washington's first secretary of the treasury. His writings are still influential and important."
"A collection of seminal legal opinions and letters of the great Chief Justice together with excerpts from Marshall's four volume life of George Washington. The volume is edited by Marshall scholar Charles Hobson."
