James Madison was physically the smallest President we have had. He was 5’4″ tall, weighed about 110 lbs. and often suffered from poor health. However, when you wanted to talk about government and what could be and should be, he was a most interesting conversationalist. The breadth of his reading in preparation for writing the Constitution is incredible. That document stands supreme in creating a lasting form of government that still ranks as the best in the world. Learn all about this physically small but intellectually giant man.
