"This country and this people seem to have been made for each other, and it appears as if it was the design of Providence, that an inheritance so proper and convenient for a band of brethren … should never be split into a number of unsocial, jealous, and alien sovereignties." So wrote John Jay, one of the revolutionary authors of The Federalist Papers, arguing that if the United States was truly to be a single nation, its leaders would have to agree on universally binding rules of governance–in short, a constitution. In a brilliant set of essays, Jay and his colleagues Alexander Hamilton and James Madison explored in minute detail the implications of establishing a kind of rule that would engage as many citizens as possible and that would include a system of checks and balances. Their arguments proved successful in the end, and The Federalist Papers stand as key documents in the founding of the United States.

In his book The Jefferson Lies, Christian nationalist pseudo-historian David Barton professes to correct what he claims are seven lies about Thomas Jefferson, in chapters titled:
Lie #1: Thomas Jefferson Fathered Sally Hemings’ Children
Lie #2: Thomas Jefferson Founded a Secular University
Lie #3: Thomas Jefferson Wrote His Own Bible and Edited Out the Things He Didn’t Agree With
Lie #4: Thomas Jefferson Was a Racist Who Opposed Equality for Black Americans
Lie #5: Thomas Jefferson Advocated a Secular Public Square through the Separation of Church and State
Lie #6: Thomas Jefferson Detested the Clergy
Lie #7: Thomas Jefferson Was an Atheist and Not a Christian
It is David Barton, however, who is doing the lying, and not those whom he accuses of being the revisionists. Through a series of seven short books, one devoted to each of Barton’s seven Jefferson lies, the real liar will be revealed, and the real Thomas Jefferson will be preserved.
This volume debunks the many lies and misrepresentations used by Barton in the chapter of his book titled "Lie #2: Thomas Jefferson Founded a Secular University."
