As you read this history section, you will find stories that are familiar and others that have largely been untold. We formed an early partnership with the First Federal Congress Project at George Washington University. The establishment of American government at Federal Hall unfolds in the project’s monumental 22-volume Documentary History of the First Federal Congress of the United States of America, 1789 – 1791, edited by Charlene Bickford, Kenneth Bowling, William diGiacomantonio, and Helen E. Viet, and published by John Hopkins University Press.
Greater diversity among modern historians gives us new perspectives. New Day at Federal Hall is committed to enlarging the view of America’s historical narrative to bring light to the stories of those whose rights were denied or deferred at the time of the nation’s founding.
