    GeorgieDo you recognize this portrait of George Washington? Thank James Madison.

    During the War of 1812, James Madison rescued this portrait from a burning White House before leaving.

    James Madison was born on this day in 1751. He is often referred to as the "Father of the Constitution" and was also the fourth president of the United States.

    Other than rescuing this portrait and adorning the US $5,000 bill, James Madison is best remembered for presenting the Virginia Plan and for overseeing the final drafting of the Constitution. US-5000
