Learn Our History Today: On December 11, 1815, President James Madison presented a new trade agreement to Congress that would serve to regulate commerce between the United States and England. Only one year earlier, another agreement had been signed between the U.S. and England, this one officially ending almost three years of war between the two nations. One of the many issues involved with this conflict, the War of 1812, was that of trade and the disrespect of the American flag on the high seas and elsewhere. Ever since the administration of Thomas Jefferson, British ships had frequently fired upon, boarded, or captured American ships in international waters, and as a result Jefferson had enacted a total trade embargo with them. After fighting the devastating War of 1812 however, both sides were ready to make peace with one another, and in addition to the more formal Treaty of Ghent, signed in 1814, Madison’s Trade agreement of 1815 served this purpose. This treaty essentially restored harmony to comme ...
On this day in 1815, President James Madison (1809-1817) presents to Congress a trade agreement with Great Britain that would regulate commerce between the two countries. The agreement came just one year after the signing of the treaty that ended the War of 1812. The commerce agreement secured America's autonomy on the high seas, but more importantly, it signified Britain's acceptance of America as a separate nation with the will and capacity to defend its interests. Resentment left over from the American Revolution (1775-1783) between Britain and the United States erupted into a second full-scale war when Britain began harassing American shipping. Beginning during the administration of America's third president, Thomas Jefferson (1801-1809), British warships occasionally fired on and boarded American navy or merchant ships while patrolling the seas for enemy French. To add insult to injury, the British "impressed" or involuntarily drafted American sailors to serve on British warships. This affront to Ame ...
On this day in 1816, President James Madison approved Indiana's admission to the Union as the 19th state. The state's name means "Land of the Indians" or "Indian land." It was the second state created from the Old Northwest Territory, land acquired largely because of the accomplishments of George Rogers Clark and his associates during the American Revolution.

What you may not know about the Star Spangled Banner You hear it at the beginning of football games and car races. You know the first line, maybe even a couple of the others. You know Francis Scott Key wrote it. You probably remember from elementary school something about him being on a boat when he wrote it. Before I get to the actual song, let's explore the War of 1812. A British ship, Leopard, fired upon a US ship, the Chesapeake, in 1807. The US ship surrendered. Four sailors were taken off the Chesapeake as British deserters. This incident loomed large in British tactical thinking a few years later when they needed sailors – a lot of them – to fight against France under Napoleon Bonaparte. So they started raiding any and every American ship they could find, and “impress” (draft) sailors into the royal navy. President James Madison sent a letter to congress listing his grievances against Great Briton (while not actually asking for a declaration of war). So congress declared war. Rememb ...
From The American Minute by Bill Federer The Democrat Party's candidate for President in the 1848 election was Lewis Cass, born OCTOBER 9, 1782. In 1807, Lewis Cass became the US Marshal for Ohio. He was a Brigadier-General in the War of 1812, fighting in the Battle of the Thames. President James Madison appointed him Governor-General of the Michigan Territory, 1813-1831, where he made Indian treaties, organized townships and built roads. In 1820, he led an expedition to northern Minnesota to search for the source of the Mississippi River in order to define the border between the U.S. and Canada. Cass' expedition geologist Henry Schoolcraft identified the Mississippi's source as Lake Itasca in 1832. President Andrew Jackson appointed Lewis Cass as Secretary of War in 1831, then minister to France in 1836. He was elected a U.S. Senator from Michigan, 1845-48, 1849-57. Senator Lewis Cass wrote from Washington, D.C. in 1846: "God, in His providence, has given us a Book of His revealed will to be with us at t ...
Wow! I don't know why I'm surprised that this 'Redskins name change' thing is picking up so much speed. Its what we should expect in a postmodern society.Last month members of congress spoke on it and now the president. And it's clear that these are people who know nothing about Native American Culture or the name Redskin. When you hear someone equating the name Redskin with the N word, it should be clear that they're completely out to lunch on the topic.The word was coined by the Native American people themselves. Historically Redskin has been an honorable name.The word can be traced all the way back to the 1600's. It was popularized by President James Madison in a speech he made to the Native Americans in the early 1800's, pleading with them to stay out of the war with Great Britain. In that speech he referred to them as "My little red people" numerous times.Rather then getting offended the indians responded with affirmation. Leaders of the tribes were present and made statements referring to themselves ...
My great grandfather (moms grandfather) Was the eye doctor that cleared Charles Lindbergh to fly his famous flight. At 7:52 A.M., May 20, 1927 Charles Lindbergh gunned the engine of the "Spirit of St Louis" and aimed her down the dirt runway of Roosevelt Field, Long Island. Heavily laden with fuel, the plane bounced down the muddy field, gradually became airborne and barely cleared the telephone wires at the field's edge. The crowd of 500 thought they had witnessed a miracle. Thirty-three and one half-hours and 3,500 miles later he landed in Paris, the first to fly the Atlantic alone. Just sayin... :) Oh... and I'm also related to President Zachary Taylor, and President James Madison... OH, and Jefferson Davis, President of the Confederacy. OOH!, AND Al Gore... (But I don't claim that one)
ROCKFISH OF AGES: CAUGHT OFF ALASKA, IT'S 200 YEARS OLD. According to MARC LALLANILLA, LIVESCIENCE, In 1813, President James Madison occupied the White House, Americans occupied Fort George in Canada (a result of the War of 1812) and a rockfish was born somewhere in the North Pacific. Two hundred years later, that same rockfish was caught off the coast of Alaska by Seattle resident Henry Liebman — possibly setting a record for the oldest rockfish ever landed. Troy Tydingco of the Alaska Department of Fish and Game told the DAILY SITKA SENTINEL that the longevity record for the shortraker rockfish (Sebastes borealis) is 175 years, but that fish "was quite a bit smaller than the one Henry caught." "That fish was 32-and-a-half inches (83 centimeters) long, where Henry's was almost 41 inches (104 centimeters) — so his could be substantially older," Tydingco said. Samples of the rockfish have been sent to a lab in Juneau, where the actual age of Liebman's fish will be determined, according to the Sentinel. ...

Alexander James Dallas (June 21, 1759 – Jan 16, 1817) American statesman who served as the U.S. Treasury Secretary under President James Madison. Dallas was born in Kingston, Jamaica, to Dr. Robert Charles Dallas (1710 – 1769) and Sarah Elizabeth (Cormack) Hewitt. When he was five his family moved to Edinburgh (his father was a Scotsman) and then to London. There he studied under James Elphinston. He planned to study law, but was unable to afford it. He married Arabella Maria Smith of Pennsylvania, the daughter of Maj. George Smith of the British Army and Arabella Barlow (in turn the daughter of the Rev. William Barlow and Arabella Trevanion, the daughter of Sir Nicholas Trevanion), in 1780 and the next year they moved to Jamaica. There he was admitted to the bar through his father's connections. Maria's health suffered in Jamaica and they moved to Philadelphia in 1783. Dallas was admitted to the Pennsylvania bar in 1785. His law practice was slow and on the side he edited the Pennsylvania Herald fro ...
Michigan’s Territorial governor from 1813-1831, began his career as an American military officer before stepping into politics at the behest of President James Madison. As governor of the territory, Cass was frequently absent, and several territorial secretaries often served as acting governor in his place. [9] Lewis Cass, Michigan's Territorial Governor from 1813-1831 In 1820, Cass led an expedition to the northern part of the territory, to the northern Great Lakes region in present-day northern Minnesota, [10] in order to map the region and find a route to the Mississippi River through Lake Superior. It was clear to many politicians in Washington that Cass was thinking of establishing an independent state. [11] Access to the Mississippi River was paramount in his ability to sustain independence. [12] Cass believed that if he could find a viable route that connected Lake Superior to the Mississippi, he could by-pass shipping routes through the eastern lakes, sending his goods south to New Orleans and t ...
American Minute with Bill Federer Tuesday, June 18, 2013 The War of 1812 began on JUNE 18, 1812. The British had captured American ships and enslaved sailors. They incited Indians to capture Fort Mims, massacring 500 men, women and children. They captured the Capitol, burnt the White House, bombarded Fort McHenry and attacked New Orleans. Outraged, many volunteered for the Army, including Davy Crockett. In his Proclamation of War, President James Madison stated: "I do moreover exhort all the good people of the United States...as they feel the wrongs which have forced on them the last resort of injured nations...to consult the best means under the blessing of Divine Providence of abridging its calamities." In the three years of the War, President Madison, who had introduced the First Amendment in the First Session of Congress, issued two separate Proclamations of Public Humiliation and Prayer, followed by a Proclamation of Public Fasting, in which he stated: "in the present time of public calamity and war ...
On this day in 1812 President James Madison signed the Declaration of War against Great Britain that initiated the War of 1812. While there were a number of causes from British intervention on America's frontier by arming the Indians to trade disputes to other factors, probably the most unifying element was the Royal Navy's practice of stopping American merchant ships and seizing sailors that they claimed were escaped English sailors. This was called 'impressment' and was related to the term 'press gang' which relates to units of soldiers or sailors who would effectively kidnap men {often by getting them drunk} to serve in the army or navy. This is not to be confused by the modern 'press gang' which is a group of sleazy leftist journalists who kidnap voters by getting them drunk on false or biased information. The War of 1812 would expose weaknesses in the American approach to war. Too few officers and men in state militias were capable of standing up to the professionals in the British Army. This led ...
How Obama Is Kin to 7 Presidents and 2 Kings President Obama shares ancestors with seven other presidents and two kings, but so do thousands of Americans who descend from colonial families. It is common for Americans who descend from 17th century American colonists to be related to famous people and to descend from old royal ancestral lines, many of which go back to medieval times.. Obama Genealogy The gateway to President Obama’s shared ancestors with President James Madison, and to one of their royal lineages, is through Martha Eltonhead, who was born in England more than 400 years ago.

Facts, Trivia, and info about President James Madison -
"My how the content of inaugural addresses has changed from 1809 until 2013 ___ It's possible the content of presidents and man in general has also changed in that same period of time." In the 1785 session of the General Assembly of the State of Virginia, James Madison said, “It is the duty of every man to render to the Creator this homage.Before any man can be considered as a member of civil society, he must be considered as a subject of the Governor of the universe.” On March 4, 1809, President James Madison stated in his inaugural address: “We have all been encouraged to feel the guardianship and guidance of that almighty being, whose power regulates the destiny of nations.” Mr. Madison was known to regularly lead his household in family devotions.
notes that 200 years ago today, former U.S. Sen. John Armstrong of New York began serving as President James Madison's Secretary of War. Armstrong's career illustrates the importance of vetting such high-level appointments carefully. During the Revolutionary War, Armstrong was one of the ringleaders of the "Newburgh Conspiracy" against the Continental Congress. He was such a polarizing choice for what would now be called Secretary of Defense in 1813 that senators of his own political faction refused to confirm his nomination, and he barely squeaked through. He proved to possess poor judgment, typified by his belief that British forces would never threaten the nation's capital. After they burned the White House, President Madison finally demanded his resignation. The Senate should always take its "advise and consent" power seriously.
When the inauguration was approaching this last week, I started to do a little bit of research on the event to find out a little more on it. When looking at the history of inauguration days, I think it is safe to say that things have in fact changed for the worse. In 1809, people wanting to go to the inaugural ball of President James Madison, hosted by his wife, Dolley, had to pay $4 each. While we the people get to pay for the inauguration itself, along with the related public festivities, the government is turning to private donors to help foot the bill for the balls. A quick financial breakdown of this year’s inauguration: Swearing-in ceremony: $1.24 million. Inaugural weekend: $49 million. That includes public events like the inaugural parade, the sound system and big-screen TVs for the crowds on the National Mall attending the event, as well as concerts and money for the Smithsonian Institution to extend its public hours. And there are the mundane costs that come with every big public event, such . ...

Yes the war of 1812 was interesting we had our ups and downs but at the end of the was President James Madison made a fasacinating observance. As you may remember Presients washington and Adams were proponents of a strong military and navy. For some President Jefferson was not and scaled back the navy some and that is why it took from 1801 to 1805 to win a war with the barbery pirates. At the of war of 1812 President Madison who had been a proponent of a smaller military as Jefferson had been realized that no more should the u.s. be weak militarly on the ground and on the seas and made sure through funds allocated by Congress that was so. He sent out steven Dekater to clear some problems we were having with algeria and they were cleared up. What I fine fasacinating is that James Madison had to experience a war when he was president ...
In June 1812, the United States declared war on Great Britain, The United States took issue with a system of blockades and licenses designed to halt trade with Napoleonic France, U.S. President James Madison approved a three-pronged assault against Canada. Many Americans believed the invasion would be a cakewalk, particularly since Britain was so distracted by the Napoleonic Wars in Europe. Former President Thomas Jefferson called the acquisition of Quebec a “mere matter of marching,” while Speaker of the House Henry Clay, a prominent war hawk, declared that the militiamen of Kentucky were capable of capturing Upper Canada. Yet despite its population advantage, the United States had “too many incompetent officers and too many raw, untrained recruits,” General William Hull, a Revolutionary War veteran whose invasion of Canada during the War of 1812 proved an embarrassing failure. When U.S. General William Hull assembled a force of about 2,000 men and led them to Detroit, the jumping-off point for . ...
The New Madrid Earthquakes of 1811-12 The New Madrid earthquakes were the biggest earthquakes in American history. They occurred in the central Mississippi Valley, but were felt as far away as New York City, Boston, Montreal, and Washington D. C. President James Madison and his wife Dolly felt them in the White House. Church bells rang in Boston. From December 16, 1811 through March of 1812 there were over 2,000 earthquakes in the central Midwest, and between 6,000-10,000 earthquakes in the Bootheel of Missouri where New Madrid is located near the junction of the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers. In the known history of the world, no other earthquakes have lasted so long or produced so much evidence of damage as the New Madrid earthquakes. Three of the earthquakes are on the list of America’s top earthquakes: the first one on December 16, 1811, a magnitude of 8.1 on the Richter scale; the second on January 23, 1812, at 7.8; and the third on February 7, 1812, at as much as 8.8 magnitude.

Important Quotations Compiled By Jolly Roger Internet Columnist, Freedom Fighter & American Patriot 1-17-5 "I believe there are more instances of the abridgement of the freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments of those in power than by violent and sudden usurpations." - President James Madison "The enormous gap between what U.S. leaders do in the world and what Americans think their leaders are doing is one of the great propaganda accomplishments of the dominant political mythology." - Michael Parenti, political scientist/author "The Press was protected so that it COULD bare the secrets of the government and inform the people. Only a free and UNrestrained press can effectively expose deception in government. And paramount among the responsibilities of a free press is the duty to prevent ANY part of the government from DECEIVING the people." - Justice Hugo L Black, U S Supreme Court, N Y Times vs U.S., 1971 (Pentagon Papers) "The modern susceptibility to conformity and obedience to authori ...
James Madison: “As the greatest danger to liberty is from large standing armies, it is best to prevent them by an effectual provision for a good militia.” (notes of debates in the 1787 Federal Convention) James Madison: “A WELL REGULATED militia, composed of the people, trained to arms, is the best and most natural defense of a free country.” (1st Annals of Congress, at 434, June 8th 1789) President James Madison: “To support the Constitution, which is the cement of the Union, as well in its limitations as in its authorities; to respect the rights and authorities reserved to the States and to the people as equally incorporated with and essential to the success of the general system;… to keep within the requisite limits a standing military force, always remembering that an armed and trained militia is the firmest bulwark of republics – that without standing armies their liberty can never be in danger, nor with large ones safe” (First Inaugural address, Saturday, March 4, 1809)

Off the topic of guns and the tragedy in CT, this is from a page we're big fans of. The next time a liberal tells you that "liberals are giving" and "conservatives are greedy"- use these facts to show them the truth. ~ Noodles Founding Father & Fourth US President James Madison: “Charity is no part of the legislative duty of the government.” Yet most liberals today disagree. They believe it’s “charitable” to steal from the cash registers of hard-working small business owners. And by running huge deficits, they believe it’s “charitable” to smash and empty the piggy banks of American children. Liberals are always “charitable” with other people’s money. That way, with their air of smug superiority, they can boast that they are the giving & compassionate ones. They insist it’s conservatives who are selfish & cold-hearted. The chart below ranks state residents’ charitable giving as a % of income. Enough said. Almost feel sorry for those believing it’s the role of government to prov ...

A eulogy for the Tea Partier's disgraceful term in Congress.
Early American statesman Alexander Hamilton said “the people will always take care to preserve the constitutional equilibrium between the federal and state governments.” This balance formed a double security for the people. If one encroached on their rights, they could find a powerful protection in the other. Our founding fathers said the federal government should be concerned with war, treaty and commerce between the states and abroad — period. Everything else – roads, education, agriculture, etc – is a state responsibility. Programs such as the far-reaching “No Child Left Behind,” signed by a Republican President, and massive federal stimulus plans with as many strings as dollars, created by a Democrat president, both disrupt the balance built into our system of government. Jefferson teamed with another future president and statesman, James Madison, to write this resolution for Kentucky and Virginia: “The several states composing the United States of America are not united on the princip ...
Happy Birthday Indiana!!! Indiana became a state on Dec. 11, 1816, when President James Madison signed the congressional resolution admitting Indiana to the Union. Indiana is the 19th state.

President James Madison Most people don't realise that the issuing of money is essentially a private business, and that the privilege of issuing money rests with an elite few and this elite few have engineered wars and caused depressions to maintain a grip on who issues the money. The reason many people do not know this is largely due to the fact that the winning side became and increasingly continues to be a vital and respected member of our global society, having an influence over large aspects of our lives including our education, our media and our governments. How we can stop these criminals is by nit accepting the credibility of the winning side simply because the media tells us that they are credible and accepting the fact that it is us who collectively give these pieces of paper it's monetary value.
We need a James Madison type of president today.

What should happen, what will happen, what must happen? Posted by Judson Phillips on December 10, 2012 at 7:06am in Tea Party Nation Forum We are watching a slow motion train wreck. The train wreck is Obama’s destruction of America. What makes this destruction worse, no wait, even possible is the fact that we do not have a real opposition party to stand against Obama and the Party of Treason. What should happen? What will happen? What must happen? What should happen is that the Republicans should just let the nation go over the fiscal cliff. Why? Because there is no deal that John Boehner can craft that does not involve his complete surrender to Obama. Boehner will surrender because he is singularly incapable of fighting. Even as early as 2009, Boehner tried to stop Republicans from being publically critical of Obama. He has caved early and often. He managed to make sure there was no serious effort to stop Obamacare and the fiscal cliff was largely his doing. By any stretch of the imagination, he has be ...

The Filibuster; In configuring the institution of the Senate, our Constitution specifies that a bill that "passes" the Senate (and of course the House of Representatives as well) is then "presented" to the President for signature (Article 1, Section 7). That our founding fathers meant by "passage" a simple majority is not even a debatable point for multiple reasons. This is clear, in the first instance, from contemporary usage of the word "pass", meaning by simple majority, as the general rule of all other parliamentary bodies, and in dictionary definitions, at the time. Second, at the birth of the Constitution this was expressly debated, and the idea of a requiring a supermajority to conduct ordinary congressional business was rejected. For example, George Mason of Virginia and others objected to the provision of "a simple majority of a quorum of the House or Senate to pass legislation that would bind the entire country." Both but Alexander Hamilton and James Madison responded to these objections in The ...

Woodberry Forest School is a private, all-male boarding school located in Woodberry Forest, Madison County, Virginia, in the United States. Woodberry's current enrollment is 402. Students come from 28 U.S. states (plus the District of Columbia), and eighteen foreign countries. History The school was founded in 1889 by Captain Robert Stringfellow Walker, who had been a member of the 43rd Battalion Virginia Cavalry (Mosby's Rangers) during the American Civil War. The school occupies approximately 1,200 acres (4.9 km2) in Madison, Virginia. The campus is bounded on one side by the Rapidan River. It was originally the estate of William Madison, brother of President James Madison. The headmaster's residence is taken entirely from an architectural design by Thomas Jefferson. The property eventually passed to the Walker family. The school was founded when Walker hired a tutor to teach his six sons and other local children because of the lack of adequate schooling in the surrounding area.

Fairfax is looking for ways to develop the historic Salona property in McLean. Salona was the site of a Union Army camp early in the Civil War, and President James Madison fled there when the British captured and burned DC.

Now this is a true statesman. Unlike the cronies we have now.
If it is not Constitutional, then don't try to force me to pay for it. If I like it, I might contribute some funds. If I don't like it and you think its great, then you pay for it and leave me alone.
This is the point. There lots of nice things one may want to do with the public treasury but ITS NOT CONSTITUTIONAL.

200 years ago today: President James Madison issued a proclamation granting full pardon to military deserters who returned to duty. This was the second appeal to deserters from the President, the first being issued in February. 150 years ago today: In the Battle of Perryville, Kentucky, a Union division advanced up Springfield Pike, halting just before the Confederate line. The fighting then stopped for a time. After noon, a Confederate division struck the Union left flank and forced it to fall back. When more rebel divisions joined the fray, the Union line made a stubborn stand, counterattacked, but finally fell back with some troops routed. In part because of the hills and the odd atmospheric conditions that occasionally occurred during battles, the sound of even ferocious fighting sometimes could not be heard close by, while being clearly audible far away. As a result, units of both armies didn't know the battle was in progress and did not become involved. Gen. Don Carlos Buell didn't know of the happe ...

"A republic is a government which derives all its powers directly or indirectly from the great body of the people, and is administered by persons holding their offices during pleasure for a limited period, or during good behavior. It is essential to such a government that it be derived from the great body of the society, not from an inconsiderable proportion or a favored class of it; otherwise a handful of tyrannical nobles, exercising their oppressions by a delegation of their powers, might aspire to the rank of republicans and clam for their government the honorable title of republic." - President James Madison, THE Federalist Papers The checks and balances of the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial branches are necessary to prevent the abuse of power.
In 1815, Democratic-Republican President James Madison (who was vehemently anti-British) realized that the war with Great Britain had come to a stalemate and that continued loss of life was fruitless. The treaties which came about as a result of peace negotiations led to Britain being the staunchest U.S. ally for the past 200 years. In 1865, Republican President Abraham Lincoln declared that restoration with, and not retribution against, the former Confederate States was of utmost importance to the restoration of the Union and recovery from 4 years of bloody civil war. In 1945, Democratic President Harry Truman embarked on a campaign to restore Germany and Japan, our former enemies. His understanding was that it was more important to help them recover from the consequences the entire world suffered as a result of the aggression of their leaders, than to make the people suffer retribution (as was the case after WWI, which led directly to the rise of Hitler). In the early 1970's, Republican president Richa ...
Some unknown facts about some famous people of the world. ¤ Merit-Ptah is the first known female physician. She is from ancient Egypt (c. 2700BC). ¤ Abraham Lincoln was really tall (6’4”) and this made him the tallest president US ever had. ¤ Alfred Nobel was the inventor of dynamite. He never wanted to known as the The merchant of death, so he changed his will to give away nobel prizes which is funded by his own wealth. ¤ Alexander Graham Bell was the inventor of telephone and upon his death all the phones in the North American Continent was silenced in the honour of him. ¤ There is a Japanese Soldier Who fought for his country in World War II even 29 years after Japanese Surrendered. His name is Hiroo Onoda. He was sent to an island in Philippines with other troops to evade the enemy troops. But they ended up in a jungle as the enemy troops advanced.

President Jefferson chose to attend church each Sunday at the Capitol and even provided the service with paid government musicians to assist in its worship. Jefferson also began similar Christian services in his own Executive Branch, both at the Treasury Building and at the War Office. Jefferson also encouraged the use of a local courthouse as a meeting place for Christian services; As President James Madison issued several proclamations for public days of prayer, fasting, and thanksgiving, and like Thomas Jefferson, President Madison also attended church at the Capitol, thus publicly endorsing religion in the official arena.
One of the biggest tricks of the Opponent is that it makes us think it is us; but the Opponent is an external force. It only exists within us when we invite it in. Our true soul is never the Opponent and always the Creator. The following is an article from: Want To Know. Org False Flag Summary of False Flag Operations and False Flag Terrorism "False flag terrorism" occurs when elements within a government stage a secret operation whereby government forces pretend to be a targeted enemy while attacking their own forces or people. The attack is then falsely blamed on the enemy in order to justify going to war against that enemy. Or as Wikipedia defines it: False flag operations are covert operations conducted by governments, corporations, or other organizations, which are designed to deceive the public in such a way that the operations appear as if they are being carried out by other entities. The name is derived from the military concept of flying false colors; that is, flying the flag of a country other t ...

200 years ago today: Prospective American charge d’affaires John Speyer writes to President James Madison to inform him that Sweden continues to emphasize its neutrality in the war with Great Britain. He also forwards Madison a copy of the peace treaty between Sweden and Great Britain as proof. 150 years ago today: A Union force commanded by Gen. Wm. Tecumseh Sherman entered the town of Randolph, Tennessee, which had been used as a safe haven for Confederate troops, and burned it.

On September 3, 1814, following the Burning of Washington and the Raid on Alexandria, Francis Scott Key and John Stuart Skinner set sail from Baltimore aboard the ship HMS Minden, flying a flag of truce on a mission approved by President James Madison. Their objective was to secure the exchange of prisoners, one of whom was Dr. William Beanes, the elderly and popular town physician of Upper Marlboro and a friend of Key's who had been captured in his home. Beanes was accused of aiding the arrest of British soldiers. Key and Skinner boarded the British flagship HMS Tonnant on September 7 and spoke with Major General Robert Ross and Vice Admiral Alexander Cochrane over dinner while the two officers discussed war plans. At first, Ross and Cochrane refused to release Beanes, but relented after Key and Skinner showed them letters written by wounded British prisoners praising Beanes and other Americans for their kind treatment. Because Key and Skinner had heard details of the plans for the attack on Baltimore, t ...

My grandma found a book written in 1825 about our family. We've had soldiers in our family fight in the Civil War, Revolutionary War, War of 18, Battle of Thames, Battle of BullRun and the Battle of Valley Forge. We also are related to President James Madison, because his cousin married somebody in our family. And a member of our family was a patriot of the Revolutionary War and he was a member of the Williamsburg Convention of 1776 and got a letter addressed to him signed by Peyton Randolph, Richard Henry Lee, Patrick Henry & George Washington for his active part in brining about the War of Independence. And Samuel (a man in our family) enlisted as a private in the Revolutionary Army in the Marquis de-Lafayette's division. He was at the surrender of Lord Cornwallis at Yorktown at the age of 17 and he served under General Charles Scott in the Indian War of 1811. He was United States Marshall for Kentucky appointed by President Washington and he served for 12 years. Joseph (Another guy in our family) s ...

History Lesson: James Madison was the shortest president at 5'4"
On this day in History. On this day in 1814, first lady Dolley Madison saves a portrait of George Washington from being looted by British troops during the war of 1812. According to the White House Historical Society and Dolley's personal letters, President James Madison left the White House on August 22 to meet with his generals on the battlefield, as British troops threatened to enter the capitol. Before leaving, he asked his wife Dolley if she had the "courage or firmness" to wait for his intended return the next day. He asked her to gather important state papers and be prepared to abandon the White House at any moment. The next day, Dolley and a few servants scanned the horizon with spyglasses waiting for either Madison or the British Army to show up. As British troops gathered in the distance, Dolley decided to abandon the couple's personal belongings and save the full-length portrait of former president and national icon George Washington from desecration by vengeful British soldiers, many of whom w ...

President James Madison on war: "Of all the enemies to public liberty war is, perhaps, the most to be dreaded, because it comprises and develops the germ of every other. War is the parent of armies; from these proceed debts and taxes; and armies, and debts, and taxes are the known instruments for bringing the many under the domination of the few. In war, too, the discretionary power of the Executive is extended; its influence in dealing out offices, honors, and emoluments is multiplied; and all the means of seducing the minds, are added to those of subduing the force, of the people. The same malignant aspect in republicanism may be traced in the inequality of fortunes, and the opportunities of fraud, growing out of a state of war, and in the degeneracy of manners and of morals engendered by both.
