Sept. 15th, 2014 & Sept. 17th, 2014!!!!!!!!

Happy Wedding Anniversary to James and Dolley Madison!!!!

And Happy Constitution Day, 2014!!!!!!!!!!

“43-year-old Congressman James Madison married 26-year-old widow Dolley Payne Todd. Throughout their 42-year-long marriage, Dolley was an indispensable aid to her husband’s career. There is no better illustration of their partnership than the remark from Charles Pinckney, who, upon losing the presidential election to Madison in 1812, claimed that he was “beaten by Mr. and Mrs. Madison.”” – James Madison’s Montpelier10710942_10154658308780193_4596468888380829754_n

As I begin my rehearsals in the musical, “Calamity Jane”, as Lieutenant Danny Gilmartin, at Theater at Latitude 58, for our fall season, I am reminded of the special life changing memory I experienced at James Madison’s Montpelier on Sept. 17th, 2008 when I went there by myself for Constitution Day. it was there that I met Ralph Ketcham (foremost Madison scholar) and John Douglas Hall (foremost Madison impersonator/interpreter). I am now in Juneau Alaska again, pursuing my career in theatre, yet James Madison still has much to do with my future and my passion:)

Please stay tuned also for news about my upcoming second installment of “Calico 2: Reloaded”, Spring 2015 – a collection or original skits. Visit it’s Facebook page for more details!

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.
