Despite being called the “Father of the Constitution,” there is no monument to James Madison in Washington, D.C.

In the fight to preserve the Second Amendment, the writings of Cesare Beccaria are quite enlightening. They were quoted by our Founding Fathers.

Jesus Christ, whose birthday is celebrated throughout the world on Christmas, has had a greater impact on human history than any person who ever lived. Though he died at the age of 33, the year in which we live is dated from his birth.

Though he never wrote a book, tens of thousands of books have been written about his life and teachings.
