In the early 1900's, a group of men got together and wrote a series of essays together known as the Federalist Papers.  The first Federalist Paper was written by Karl Marx.  It was known as the Communist Manifesto.  This was a democratic masterpiece.  The second was written by William Henry Harrison.  It was known as, "Ohhhhhhhh Captain, My Captain."  The third was written by Sigmund Freud.  It came to be known as Walden Two:  A Look into the Mind of B.F. Skinner.  Freud was a key component in the essays, adding a behaviorist, not psychoanalytical viewpoint to the essays.  The essays were formally stopped when in 1912, Marx was killed by Aaron Burr in a duel.  However, Tippecanoe wrote for many years afterward with his last work published just before he died in 1949 at the age of 97.
