Madison's Hand: Revising the Constitutional Convention

Mary Sarah Bilder, Founders Professor of Law at Boston College Law School, challenges our traditional view of how American statesman James Madison shaped the United States Constitution. Bilder will explore how Madison, in revising his notes on the 1787 Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia for later publication, changed allegiances and depictions of people like Alexander Hamilton in the years after American independence.
