James Madison by Sydney Howard Gay( Book )

13 editions published between 1884 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The life of the "Father of the Constitution" is chronicled beginning with his family in Virginia and his early beginnings in public service as a Committee of Safety member in 1774. He was more at home in politics than he was on the battlefield, however, and was elected a delegate to the Virginia Convention in 1776. He was exceedingly well-studied in all forms of government and would become instrumental in the writing of the United States Constitution and the Bill of Rights. A stint in congress and a time as the Secretary of State would eventually help him become president. In the build-up to the War of 1812, it was President Madison who pushed back against the British while demanding an enlarged military at home. A divided government hindered his push, and it was only afterwards that the wisdom of his foresight could be appreciated. James Madison offers a deep look into one of the founders of the nation that is sure to be appreciated by presidential historians and casual observers alike
