James Madison was a founding father of the United States and the 4th American president, serving in office from 1809 to 1817. An advocate for a strong federal government, the VA born Madison composed the first drafts of the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights and earned the nickname “Father of the Constitution.”

In 1792, Madison and Thomas Jefferson founded the Democratic-Republican Party, which has been called America’s first opposition political party. When Jefferson became the 3rd U.S. president, Madison served as his secretary of state. In this role, he oversaw the Louisiana Purchase from the French in 1803.

During his presidency, Madison led the U.S. into the controversial War of 1812 against Great Britain. After 2 terms in the White House, Madison retired.

Democratic-Republican James Madison was elevated to the presidency in the election of 1808. Madison won 122 electoral votes to Federalist Charles Pinckney’s 47 votes. Vice President George Clinton received 6 electoral votes for president from his native NY, but easily defeated Federalist Rufus King for vice president, 113-47, with scattered vice-presidential votes for Madison, James Monroe, and John Langdon of NH. The main issue of the election was the Embargo Act of 1807.

In the 1812 contest James Madison was reelected president by the narrowest margin of any election since the Democratic-Republican party had come to power in 1800. He received 128 electoral votes to 89 for his Federalist opponent DeWitt Clinton, the lieutenant governor of NY and inventor. Elbridge Gerry of MA won the vice presidency with 131 votes to Jared Ingersoll’s 86. The War of 1812, which had begun 5 months earlier, was the dominant issue. Opposition to the war was concentrated in the northeastern Federalist states.
