In this episode we finally talk about what you want to hear - the Lincoln/Douglass debates!

Stephen Douglas was a man who constantly found himself walking a very thing line on almost every subject he touched. If he said one thing he would anger one set of people - but if he said the opposite, someone else would be upset instead!

Join us in this episode as we again talk about Stephen Douglas!

The Douglas/Lincoln debates are some of the most famous debates in all of American history! But before he debated Lincoln, Stephen Douglas had built quite the resume on his own.

A semi-national leader for the Democrats as a Senator and statesmen, Stephen Douglas is a truly interesting character in our past. He was a wealthy landowner and was hugely influential on many fronts.

James Monroe is one of the only guys in history who was able to win two elections in a row with almost no competition at all. He even ran completely unopposed in his second attempt!

Monroe not only persevered through a tough time in our history during the War of 1812 - he did it with one of the most bipartisan cabinets ever! While we don't agree with all of his policies and beliefs, you can't deny that Monroe had a wonderful effect on the United States of America.

James Monroe is an easy president to miss. He's not a super controversial figure, but he's also not a guy who just lets people walk all over him. In this episode we discuss the early life of the last Founding Father to be the leader of our country, as well as the last president to have fought during the Revolutionary War. 

Ambassador to France, Secretary of State, Secretary of War, Delegate to the Virginia House, United States Senator and Governor of Virginia are just a few of Monroe's many job titles that we discuss in this episode!

On the last episode we talked about how the Bill of Rights and subsequently the first 10 Amendments to the Constitution came about. This time around we talk about each one of those 10 in a bit more depth.

A big thank you to our boy James Madison who fought to make it all happen.

Way back before the Bill of Rights was even written, the writers of the Constitution knew there was going to be one! These 10 Amendments to our governing document lead the way through troubled times and precarious situations on a regular basis.

However, we don't go very deep in to what the actual amendments within the Bill of Rights entail during this episode. That's next time. Instead, we talk about the history of, necessity for, and influencers behind the nation's 10 most popular amendments.

In this episode you’ll hear about Madison’s time as President and some of the challenges he faced such as:

*getting his cabinet nominees approved
*paying for a war despite not wanting a national bank
*not having Thomas Jefferson around

We also talk about his rockstar wife, Dolley, and how she managed to keep things going in spite of some of the men in her life after James’ time in office.

James Madison is often overlooked - and no, that's not a short joke. You may know him as our fourth president, but Madison accomplished a tremendous amount of good for the well-being of our new country here in the USA aside from the office of the presidency. From being the Father of the Constitution and Bill of Rights to being an influential delegate in foreign affairs, we think James Madison deserves his very own episode.

Matthew Lyon is definitely one of the most interesting Congressmen we've ever had here in the United States of America! The guy lived multiple lives and basically needed all of them with all the crazy antics he pulled. Give it up for our favorite brawler in Congress... Matthew Lyon!
