Father of the Constitution

Gravestone of James and Dolley (Payne) Madison, Montpelier, Virginia

James Madison (1751-1836), was best known as “The Father of the Constitution”, however he lost much of his well deserved prestige after becoming President. When he died in 1836, he was the last surviving signer of the U.S. Constitution. Dolly became the “Madonna” of 19th century America. See “The Dolly Madison Project”.
