Happy Birthday to President James Madison!!! March 16th, 2011!!!

HAPPY 260th BIRTHDAY, to President James Madison, Fourth President of the United States and “Father of the Constitution” 🙂

Dear and Respected Viewers, Leaders, Fellow Madisonians, Family and Friends,

It is with great happiness and delight that I announce and celebrate with you all the 260th Birthday of our fourth president and Father of the Constitution, James Madison! Not only was Madison “The Father of the Constitution” (though he responded that the Constitution was “the work of many heads and many hands”), and our fourth president; He also was the primary fighter for religious liberty throughout the nation and introduced the Bill of Rights, negotiated the Louisiana Purchase, led us through the arduous War of 1812, and wrote and preserved a record of the Constitutional Convention debates…among MANY other great accomplishments. Hurrah for Mr. Madison!

The celebration of Madison’s birthday, as you are all aware, is much recognized at Montpelier and JMU, and hopefully nationwide! I applaud and nod to you who have contributed so greatly your time and energy into the legacy of James Madison.

On March 17th, an article I’ve written for The Breeze in honor of Madison’s birthday has been confirmed for publication. I shall send a follow up to the link to the article once it comes out, as well as post it to this blog:)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JAMES MADISON!!!!! March 16th, 2011 (1811) !!!!!!

God Bless!

With Great Joy, Humility and Esteem, I am Yr. Obt Srvt.

About presidentjamesmadison

I am a devoted follower of Jesus Christ, and a fervent scholar and interpreter of our 4th President and Father of the US Constitution, James Madison I have been studying James Madison meticulously and abundantly for over 5 years. I've studied just about every book about him (secondary resources), and read his writings often (primary resources). I continue to study with a passion and devotion that I still am trying to understand in humility, as it grows greater daily:) I believe that my passion for Madison is a gift from God. I will use it for the rest of my life to give God all the glory and honor, and to continue to uplift James Madison's legacy at James Madison University, James Madison's Montpelier, and throughout the nation. I am flattered to have become JMU's unofficial interpreter of James Madison. I represent him at events/programs/presentations/debates quite frequently, as I resemble Madison exactly, via height, weight, lifestyle, views, personality, and facial feature.
