Liberty Fund Co-Sponsored Weekend: Presidents and the Constitution – James Madison (Montpelier, VA)

For this co-sponsored colloquium participants will read James Madison’s signal contributions to our republican government in the form of his Federalist essays, with particular focus on Numbers 10 and 51. Madison’s late appreciation for a bill of rights will be studied in his correspondence with Jefferson regarding the propriety of these amendments.
