Event description:

Happy birthday, James Madison! Our fourth president and Virginia native, James Madison, co-authored The Federalist Papers with Alexander Hamilton and John Jay. Madison and Jay were instrumental in the ratification of the United States Constitution in 1787, but diverged politically afterwards when Madison aligned with Thomas Jefferson and his Democratic-Republicans. Take a docent-led tour of John Jay’s Bedford House highlighting the relationship between these two Founding Fathers.

Tours depart from the glass porch of the Main House at 1pm, 2pm, and 3pm.
