This generalization is based on my reading of MP from August 1782 to March 1783, when he served as a Virginia delegate to the Confederation Congress. Much more will be forthcoming on Madison as his role in the story grows. The best brief character sketch of Madison is in Stanley Elkins and Eric McKitrick, The Age of Federalism: The Early Republic, 1788–1800 (New York, 1993), 79–92. 32.

The character sketch is based on the early chapters of Ron Chernow’s magisterial Alexander Hamilton (New York, 2004) and the first three volumes of HP . 35.

Kohn, Eagle and Sword: The Beginning of a Military Establishment in America (New York, 1975), 17–39. See also the scholarly article by Kohn, “The Inside History of the Newburgh Conspiracy: America and the Coup d’État,” WMQ 27 (1970): 187– 220. Rappleye, Morris , 331–38, makes a persuasive case that Robert Morris was not the chief instigator, Gouverneur Morris was. 43. AH to GW, 13 February 1783, HP 3:254. 44.

Charles Royster, A Revolutionary People at War: The Continental Army and the American Character (Chapel Hill, N.C., 1979), 341–51, recovers this poignant moment, as does Fleming, Perils of Peace , 298–322.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
