James Madison and the Constitution

He was a delegate to the Continental Congress, the Father of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, a founder of his party, and one of the first presidents of the United States. Yet James Madison remains relatively uncelebrated. Three experts discuss Madison’s enormous achievements and his legacy, and debate why he has so often been denied his rightful place among America’s most important Founding Fathers. The panelists are Benno C. Schmidt, Jr., Chairman of the Edison Schools, and former President of Yale University and Dean of Columbia Law School; Joseph J. Ellism, Pulitzer Prize winner for Founding Brothers: The Revolutionary Generation and National Book Award winner for American Sphinx: The Character of Thomas Jefferson, and; Sean Wilentz, Dayton-Stockton Professor of History at Princeton University and the author of Chants Democratic and The Rise of American Democracy: Jefferson to Lincoln. This event was held by the New-York Historical Society in collaboration with Americans For Madison.
