The voting is over but the blame-game and the debates continue. I thought it would be fun to take a look back at another era – 1810. At that time James Madison, the Father of the Constitution, was president. Madison, a Democrat-Republican (that was the name of the party), is credited primarily for the War of 1812. The U.S. population was 7.2 million, including 1.4 million African-Americans, of whom 1.2 were slaves. The very first Black Baptist Church, founded in Pennsylvania, turned a year old. Four years had passed since Lewis & Clark finished their westward exploration and a million people relocated west of Appalachia.
What has been will be again,
what has been done will be done again;
there is nothing new under the sun. Eccl. 1: 9
