James Madison was the fourth President of the United States. He is also known as the “Father of the Constitution” because of his pivotal contribution in drafting the United States Constitution. His other extremely important contribution was the United States Bill of Rights, which he authored as well as promoted. The first ten amendments are particularly attributed to him.
The biggest challenge faced by Madison was the war of 1812 because of lack of financial support a weak Army and a cold shoulder from the militias. However, an era of prosperity followed the war;it was called the “Era of Good Feeling”.
