Meet President James Madison!

Hear about the struggle to build a country whose government is based on the consent of the governed. The President will talk about almost any issue and any of his colleagues. The audience is encouraged to question, comment, and debate. See how many of the issues confronted then — slavery, money, power, and more — remain relevant today. FREE! Ages 14 and up.
