Field Trip!!

Montpelier, James Madison's home in central Virginia, is restored and re-opened to visitors. While Thomas Jefferson and George Washington get most of the attention for birthing our nation, it was James Madison's work that made us the unique country we are today. He studied governments all over the world and throughout time to come up with the framework for our Constitution, enshrining the rule of law rather than the rule of men. It's about time we removed the pink stucco from the man's house.
