ABSTRACT
The article presents a satirical criticism on the administration of former U.S. President James Madison. The author focuses on his war declarations against Great Britain and France. On this decision, Madison has received little credit for his triumphs and a lot of blame for his misfortunes. He noted that several federalist editors who described Madison's measures prompted them to acclaim him as a dictator due to his firm resolution on declaring war.
