New Online: High-Resolution Color Images of James Madison’s Notes from the Constitutional Convention (Library of Congress)

Library of Congress: New Online: High-Resolution Color Images of James Madison’s Notes from the Constitutional Convention. “When the Constitutional Convention met in Philadelphia in 1787, James Madison, then a delegate from Virginia, later fourth president of the United States, took it upon himself to take notes…. Those notes—more than 600 pages in Madison’s tiny, neat handwriting—are in the James Madison Papers in the Manuscript Division at the Library of Congress. The Library has long made them available to scholars and the public, first on microfilm, and then online. Now, for the first time, the Library is making available online high-resolution color images of the notes that reflect modern standards for publication.”
