One thing that surprised me was that Mr. Jefferson sent troops to help out George Washington against the British. Also that Mr. Jefferson did not want to separate from the Crown. As he grew in age, he no longer wanted to leave his beloved home that he had built.
In the book it only mentioned this once, however Thomas Jefferson had promised "When I first entered on stage of public life I came to a resolution never to engage, while in public office, in any kind of enterprise for the improvement of my fortune, nor to wear any other character than that of a farmer. I have never departed from it in a single instance;"
In multiple bills Thomas Jefferson tried to abolish slavery, Timing was not right for the people of early America to accept this.
After reading this I would like to see the home that Thomas Jefferson built in Monticello for myself. It is still there today owned by his descendants.
air. But nonetheless it highlights some of his best achievements and shares why he was an important figure in American history.
I was surprised how closely his book followed this one, at least towards the end of the book.
I love reading on my Kindle, and you can't beat FREE.
