Editorial Reviews

Thomas Jefferson is the most researched, most written about, most referenced, and most quoted of our Founding Fathers. And yet, somehow, he remains the most stubbornly inscrutable. His life is a seemingly impenetrable thicket of contradictions: he enshrined the words All Men are Created Equal, and yet was a lifelong slave-owner; he was simultaneously a man of the people and the personification of the Virginia aristocrat; he was a die-hard American revolutionary who was also a dedicated lover of European culture and art; he advocated ruthless fiscal responsibility as president, yet his own finances were mired in debt.

Embrace and celebrate the third president s complicated life and legacy in the two-hour HISTORY documentary, Jefferson, the story of a national icon who remains, in historian Joseph Ellis memorable phrase, a great American Sphinx.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very informative and entertaining documentary November 28, 2012
By Belle
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this documentary. I came away with a much deeper understanding of Jefferson, the man. He was not a perfect man, but was, perhaps, perfect for that time. The direction was excellent, and the narators and the actors who participated were exceptionally good.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm Biased August 2, 2011

As the lead in this I would like to thank the cast crew and director for doing an excellent documentary of a most complex man.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's just ok September 12, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A lot of historical inaccuracies mixed with some accurate information. From the beginning where they show the death of Jefferson it's entirely inaccurate as Jefferson is in an unknown room with just 1 other person while he passes, the room is not Jefferson's at Monticello. Later they show British Soldiers marching on Monticello, and they show a monocular with the current Monticello in it, Monticello wasn't built until after the revolution(in it's present form). They also make it a fact that Jefferson fathered children with Sally Hemmings, when the DNA evidence only shows that a Jefferson did, which was more than likely his brother who was around the slaves more than Thomas was. They also compare him to modern GOP, you can't compare any of the founders to any modern party and there are few similarities.

Overall it's entertaining, and does touch on a few new subjects, just be cautious that there are some inaccuracies. I was looking for something different.
