Happy birthday to James Madison, born on this date in 1751.  According to History dot com, Madison is remembered as drafter of the Constitution, recorder of the Constitutional Convention, author of the Federalists Papers, in particular number 10, and fourth president of the United States, leading the Nation during the War of 1812.   In 1794, Madison married a young widow, Dolley Payne Todd, who would prove to be Washington, D.C.’s finest hostess during Madison’s years as secretary of state under Jefferson, prior to his own presidency.  After retiring from official political positions, Madison served Thomas Jefferson’s beloved University of Virginia first as a member of the board of visitors and then as rector. In 1938, the State Teachers College at Harrisonburg, Virginia, was renamed in Madison’s honor as Madison College; in 1976, it became James Madison University.  Listen to the podcast here;
