Federalist No. 74 (Federalist Number 74) is an essay by Alexander Hamilton and the seventy-fourth of the Federalist Papers. It was published on March 25, 1788 under the pseudonym Publius, the name under which all the Federalist Papers were published. Its title is, "The Command of the Military and Naval Forces, and the Pardoning Power of the Executive", and it is the eighth in a series of 11 essays discussing the powers and limitations of the Executive branch.

In this paper, Hamilton justifies the President's status as the commander of the militia, as well as the President's power to grant pardons.
