      Although James Madison's birthdate is listed as 16 MAR 1751, it was actually 05 MAR 1750/1 on the day he was born based on the Julian calendar. In 1752 the Gregorian calendar replaced the Julian calendar and 11 days were added to adjust for the discrepancy between the two calendars. Also, records of James Madison Sr. state that his son James Jr. was actually born at midnight between 05 and 06 MAR.
