Primary material documenting the actions, debates, and thoughts of the First Federal Congress (1789 - 1791) and its members were compiled by the First Federal Congress Project and published in 20 volumes by the Johns Hopkins University Press. These important documents are now accessible electronically, bringing this rich legacy to the fingertips of a new generation of students and scholars. Comprising 20,000 annotated pages and 250 images, this innovative online reference features an intuitive browse interface for quick content discovery and robust search engine. At least two new volumes are planned for future publication, and The Early Republic will eventually incorporate digital editions of over 20 other publications relating to the colonial period and revolution. Updated annually.
