Last night I watched the C-SPAN C3 History James Madison’s Montpelier – Montpelier Historic Site session on TV. The program description is shown next:
Michael Quinn gave a tour of the home of James and Dolley Madison and talked about why the fourth president of the United States is often called “the father of the U.S. Constitution.” Montpelier, the home of President James Madison, is located ninety miles south of the nation’s capital. The 2,650 acre estate in Orange County, Virginia, is a property of the National Trust for Historic Preservation that is managed by the Montpelier Foundation. This session lasted 30 minutes.
