History:

James Monroe (April 28, 1758 ? July 4, 1831). He was an American politician and the Fifth President of the United States between 1817 and 1825. Before reaching the presidency, he was soldier, lawyer, continental delegate in Congress, Senator, Governor, Secretary of State and Secretary of Defense. Between 1780 and 1783, he continued his studies of law with Thomas Jefferson (1743- 1826). He served and was wounded at the battle of Trenton. As President, he went down on history by his famous doctrine: "America for Americans", which in reality was prepared by John Quincy Adams (1767-1848) but was attributed to Monroe. It was basically addressed to Europe with the intent that none of the European countries interfered in the affairs of the American continent.
