U. S. State Captitols (Sung in Alphabetical order)
This is a workshop from the new opera/musical, RED WHITE & BLUE with Contemporary Opera Los Angeles on September 6, 2007, directed by Tom Villano.
RED WHITE & BLUE is a Play within a Play and has 3 acts: Act I: The Audition. Act II: The Rehearsal Act III: The Performance.
In this clip from Act III, we see the girls in Red (Edith Evanski) White (Delaina Brown) and Blue (Lisa Boyd) singing the U.S. State Capitols in alphabetical order. They were all supposed to wear the unflattering column dresses, but the girl in Blue decided to wear something form fitting and fabulous. The girl in white changed her dress, but the girl in red is still wearing the dress which resembles a potato sack. She puts her boa around her waist to try to give it an hour glass look, but then it gets stuck when she needs it for the choreography.
Music by Susan Asbjornson, lyrics by history, Orchestra conducted and music orchestrated by Pancho Burgos, Bill Protzmann on piano. ContemporaryOpera.com

George Washington, James Madison, and the Creation of the American Republic (2000)
The historian Garry Wills wrote:
Madison's claim on our admiration does not rest on a perfect consistency, any more than it rests on his presidency. He has other virtues. ... As a framer and defender of the Constitution he had no peer. ... The finest part of Madison's performance as president was his concern for the preserving of the Constitution. ... No man could do everything for the country—not even Washington. Madison did more than most, and did some things better than any. That was quite enough.
George F. Will once wrote that if we truly believed that the pen is mightier than the sword, our nation's capital would have been called Madison, D.C., instead of Washington, D.C.
Madison's writings are studied for the debate over human rights among different classes of citizens in the 21st century. Madison appears to have anticipated the danger of a strong majority imposing its will on a weaker minority by popular vote. Madison, in The Federalist Papers, in Federalist No. 51, wrote:
It is of great importance in a republic not only to guard the society against the oppression of its rulers, but to guard one part of the society against the injustice of the other part... In a society under the forms of which the stronger faction can readily unite and oppress the weaker, anarchy may as truly be said to reign as in a state of nature, where the weaker individual is not secured against the violence of the stronger.
In 1986, Congress created the James Madison Memorial Fellowship Foundation as part of the bicentennial celebration of the Constitution. The Foundation offers $24,000 graduate level fellowships to secondary teachers to undertake a master's degree which emphasizes the study of the Constitution. Montpelier, his family's plantation and his home in Orange, Virginia, has been designated a National Historic Landmark.
Many counties, several towns, cities, educational institutions, a mountain range and a river are named after Madison:
Madison County – lists counties named for him
Cities: e.g. Madison, Wisconsin
Named in his honor were the James Madison College of public policy at Michigan State University; and James Madison University in Harrisonburg, Virginia; the James Madison Institute honors his contributions to the Constitution.
The James Madison Memorial Building is a building of the United States Library of Congress in Washington, DC and serves as the official memorial to Madison.
The Madison Range was named in honor of the then U.S. Secretary of State by Meriwether Lewis as the Lewis and Clark Expedition traveled through Montana in 1805. The Madison River in southwestern Montana, was named in 1805 by Lewis & Clark.
Mount Madison in the Presidential Range of the White Mountains in New Hampshire is named for him.
Two U.S. Navy ships have been named USS James Madison and three as USS Madison.
Madison's portrait was on the old U.S. $5000 bill. This denomination, however, has not been printed since 1946, and they have been recalled since 1969.
Madison Cottage in New York City was named in his honor shortly after his death. It had been an important way station at the northernmost edge of New York City. The grounds where the cottage was located became Madison Square park. The park in turn gave rise to the name for Madison Square Gardens which was originally located adjacent to the park. Madison Square Gardens was an important bicycle racing venue and the subsequent host of a type of cycling known as Madison Cycling.
Through diligence and long hours of study that may have compromised his health, Madison graduated in 1771. His studies included Latin, Greek, science, geography, mathematics, rhetoric, and philosophy. Great emphasis also was placed on speech and debate; Madison helped found the American Whig Society, in direct competition to fellow student Aaron Burr's Cliosophic Society. After graduation, Madison remained at Princeton to study Hebrew and political philosophy under the university president, John Witherspoon, before returning to Montpelier in the spring of 1772. He became quite fluent in Hebrew. Madison studied law from his interest in public policy, not with the intent to practice law.
At a height of only five feet, four inches (163 cm), and never weighing more than 100 pounds, he became the most diminutive president.
