A panel discussion was held on James Madison and the U.S. Constitution. James Madison was a delegate to the Continental Congress, the Father of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, a founder of his party, and one of the first presidents of the United States. Yet James Madison remains relatively uncelebrated. Three experts discussed Madison’s enormous achievements and his legacy, and debated why he has so often been denied his rightful place among America’s most important Founding Fathers.

“James Madison and the Constitution,” a program in the “The American Constitution” series at the New York Historical Association, was presented in collaboration with Americans For Madison. close
