James Madison Statesman and President Author:Regina Z. Kelly Authors Note — Because there is so little recorded about the early life of James Madison, teh incidents in teh first four chapters of this biography are fictionized. My purpose was to gife the facts that are known, to relate them to the important events of the time, and to show certain charectoristics of madison which probably began to delovope i... more »n his boyhood.
Somewhat more is known about Madison's life as a student at the College of New Jersey. From about that point on, teh biography is factual. Today we have access to many letters and papers written by madison adn his colleages which give us a true picture of his adult life.
