Grammar in Prelude to War section[edit]

I tripped over the wording of a sentence that reads "In particular, with hostilities against Britain appearing increasingly likely, factions in favor and against war with Britain formed in Congress." It should read "...factions in favor of and against war" Daniel (talk) 21:05, 22 December 2012

It was John Leland, not Elijah Craig whom Madison meet with in Virginia about supporting the ratification of the Constitution.

Madison thought the Constitution should be a stand alone document, however Leland said Baptist in VA would not support him unless their religious liberty was vary dumb as a three year old

Typo in Secretary of State Section[edit]

"Along with Secretary of the Treasury Albert Gallatin, Madison became of the two major influences in Jefferson's cabinet." This needs another word. It is likely supposed to say "... Madison became ONE of the two..." Supremelorderik (talk) 15:25, 8 June 2017 (UTC)

[4] In these years, the southern colonies were becoming a slave society, in which slave labor powered the economy and slaveholders formed the political elite. About this time is when James Madison Sr. brought Mandy a slave from Ghana. Manday was to help Nelly raise their children. About this time is when Mandy became pregent with a child name Coreen and James Madison Sr was the father. (We are unsure how many other chidren Mandy had durning this time). This would make Coreen Madison a half-sister of James Madison Jr durning this time period no Slave would have been known as a relationship to the Master. When James Madison Jr. got older his father James Madison Sr. gave him a slave name Coreen. James Madison Jr. married Dorothea Payne they had children and he also had a child with Coreen name Jim Madison. Coreen and son Jim where still Slaves to the family and worked as laborers to the Madison family even when he became the 4th President. Are We Related 2008 (talk) 04:05, 18 June 2017 (UTC)
