WEDNESDAY NIGHT ON NORTH FLORIDA WRITER WE WILL DISCUSS THE PRESIDENCIES OF JAMES MADISON AND JAMES MONROE. WE'LL TALK ABOUT THE WAR OF 1812 AND HOW AMERICA DEFENDED HERSELF SUCCESSFULLY AND BEGAN TO DEVELOP A NATIONALIST PRIDE AND CONTINUED TO GROW. FLORIDA WAS ADDED TO AMERICAN TERRITORY DURING THIS TIME AND MORE CITIZENS MOVED INLAND IN SEARCH OF LAND AND A BETTER LIFE. THE SUPREME COURT BEGAN TO DEVELOP A NATIONAL PRESENCE UNDER CHIEF JUSTICE JOHN MARSHALL AND A TEMPORARY SOLUTION TO THE SLAVERY QUESTION WAS NEGOTIATED BY THE MISSOURI COMPROMISE.

AMERICA'S DESTINY BECAME CLEAR AND THE FUTURE LOOKED BRIGHT, YET THE DIVISION BETWEEN NORTH AND SOUTH WAS REARING ITS UGLY HEAD AND WOULD SURFACE MORE AND MORE IN THE NEXT GENERATION. BUT AN ERA OF GOOD FEELINGS WAS PRESENT IN CONGRESS AT THIS TIME AND AMERICANS WERE MORE OPTIMISTIC THAN THEY HAD BEEN SINCE THEIR FOUNDING ABOUT THE NATION'S LASTING PRESENCE.

I HOPE YOU WILL JOIN BILLY YANK AND ME FOR ANOTHER TRIP DOWN HISTORY LANE, FOR HISTORY IS A GOOD TEACHER ABOUT WHAT WILL HAPPEN IF WE AREN'T VIGILANT. WE WILL RELATE SOME OF THE EVENTS OF THE PAST TO ACTIONS TODAY AND HOW THEY RELATE TO ONE ANOTHER.
