Return of the Roman

Rhonda Rodentilly, Document Historian

Remember how political writers “back in the day*” used different names when they wrote something?  Benjamin Franklin wrote as Silence Dogood* and Alexander Hamilton wrote the Federalist Papers under the name Publius.  The battle over the Jay Treaty once again brought out the Roman in Alexander Hamilton.  He wrote a series of arguments for the treaty under the name Camillus.  Then he responded to his arguments under the name Philo Camillus.  I don’t know about you, but I think that’s pretty awesome.
