America's former Second Lady spent part of Thursday afternoon at James Madison's home in Orange.
Lynne Cheney was the keynote speaker at Montpelier's Constitution Day festivities. Hundreds of people, including students from Orange Elementary School, braved the rain to celebrate the 222nd anniversary of the signing of The Constitution.
"This is a very important day to celebrate because The Constitution really defines who we are as Americans. It defines our nation. It defines our government. It spells out how we all live together. And we live under The Constitution every day," said Montpelier Foundation President Michael Quinn.
