The Documentary History of the First Federal Congress, 1789-1791: Second Session (vols. 18-20), Correspondence

The completion of volumes 18 through 20; preparation of volumes 21 and 22; and preparation of the electronic version.

The First Federal Congress Project (FFCP) at The George Washington University (GWU) has the publication of the 22 volume Documentary History of the First Federal Congress, 1789-1791 (DHFFC) as its primary goal. Seventeen vols. have been published; 3 more are at the Johns Hopkins University Press (Nov. 2008); the preliminary editing of last 2 vols. is roughly 75% complete. The volumes underway will complete the last series of the DHFFC, the correspondence series. We expect that the 3 volumes at the JHUP will be published and the remaining two will be well along in the production phase by the end of the requested grant period. During the grant period, staff will also work on reviewing the electronic DHFFC to be launched by the JHUP in early 2009 and continue to act as a research center on the FFC, which was the most important and productive Congress in U.S. history, recognized by contemporaries as a "second sitting" of the Federal Convention.
