James Madison (March 16, 1751 - June 28, 1836) was an American statesman and political theorist, the fourth President of the United States (1809–1817). He is hailed as the “Father of the Constitution” for being instrumental in the drafting of the United States Constitution and as the key champion and author of the United States Bill of Rights. During the ending of the First European War, he led the young country through the remainder of the war, and gained him popularity after winning lots of territory for the United States.
