By John P. Kaminski

Constitutional Historian John Kaminski has gathered this remarkable collection of quotations by and about American founder James Madison for the third installment of his Word Portraits of America’s Founders series with the Wisconsin Historical Society Press. Through Madison’s own words and those of his peers, we learn more about one of the country’s most influential Founding Figures, a cerebral man and early president of the United States who held a lifelong commitment to liberty and whose Virginia Plan was used as a blueprint for the Constitutional Convention, where the Articles of Confederation was replaced with the new U.S. Constitution that bore traces of Madison’s influence throughout. 

John P. Kaminski is the founder and director of The Center for the Study of the American Constitution in the History Department at the University of Wisconsin–Madison. He is director and co-editor of The Documentary History of the Ratification of the Constitution, of which twenty-nine volumes have been published by the Wisconsin Historical Society Press. A leading scholar on Constitutional history, Kaminski has published widely on a variety of topics in the American Founding Era.
