Test: AP US Government


What is ironic about Alexander Hamilton and James Madison's political careers?

While both wrote together about the dangers of political factions, each would go on to found America's first partisan political parties.

Although both wrote extensively about the rights of American agriculturalists, each man would later pass laws privileging merchants.

Though both men supported the legal rights of white citizens, neither was concerned with the rights of black slaves or freedmen.

Despite early support for the American Revolution, both would eventually move to Europe.

Whereas Hamilton supported Federalism because he was from a large state, Madison supported Federalism despite being from a small state.
