on the subject of James Madison’s Hogwarts House

I was going to submit this to @sortinghatchats but then it got too long so I figured I’d just make a separate post. For those who don’t know - the amazing folks there constructed the most insane elaborate sorting system I’ve ever seen and it’s basically been my Hogwarts Houses Bible since I’ve read it.

Dolley Madison was so awesome!

 She was a Quaker and had two sons. Her husband and son died from a yellow fever epidemic and she was left a widow. Her neighbor Aaron Burr introduced Dolley to James Madison and the two of them became engaged but since Madison wasn’t a Quaker, she was expelled for marrying outside her faith.
