The Papers of James Madison, Presidential Series Volume 7: 25 October 1813-30 June 1814 (Book)
Title: The Papers of James Madison, Presidential Series Volume 7: 25 October 1813-30 June 1814
Author: James Madison
Editor: Katharine E. Harbury
Editor: Angela Kreider
Editor: J. C. A. Stagg
Editor: Mary Parke Johnson
Editor: Anne Mandeville Colony
Abstract: The Papers of James Madison are the correspondence and writings of the Virginia statesman most often remembered for his public service as "Father of the Constitution" and as fourth president of the United States. The published volumes provide information on Madison’s life and the general history of the period in which Madison lived (1751-1836), bringing together documents found in some 250 archives worldwide, including incoming and outgoing correspondence; essays notes, diaries, account books, ledgers, wills, legal papers, and inventories; informative notes on textual and subject matters; and comprehensive indexes. The Presidential Series, covering the years 1809 to early 1817, centers largely on Madison's record as commander-in-chief during the War of 1812, the first full-scale conflict to be waged under the U.S. Constitution of 1787. Madison's correspondence as president deals with a particularly wide range of concerns—national politics, international diplomacy and war, Indian affairs, the construction of the nation's capital, even petitions from ordinary citizens for charity and mercy—to which Madison responded.

Abstract: During the time covered by this volume, Madison remained at Montpelier, with visits to neighborhood friends and attendance at the Board of Visitor meetings at the University of Virginia. Madison wrote letters on a wide range of topics, corresponding with President James Monroe about domestic and international politics and discussing the building of the University of Virginia with Thomas Jefferson. The volume includes the minutes of those Board of Visitors meetings of the university attended by Madison, extensive discourse on the importance of public education, and comments on slavery. Finally, there are private letters dealing with daily life at Montpelier, including a typhus epidemic during the winter of 1820–21. The editors also provide a number of visitors’ accounts published in contemporary newspapers. Access to people, places, and events of the period is facilitated by detailed annotation and a comprehensive index.
