Get one step closer to knowing Thomas Jefferson with a deep dive into his life as an American founding father.
As a child growing up on his family’s plantation, young Thomas Jefferson had to find ways to entertain himself. He would spend hours reading, studying, and observing the plantation that surrounded him.
He never expected that he would change the world one day.
These little things that he did would add up, and once he grew older, he became the man we know him as today. The main author of the Declaration of Independence, a founding father, and ultimately, the third president of the United States.
But, like every story, there are always two sides to history. There are some that described him as a “great man, but not a great American”, or on the other side of the coin, there were some that called him a hero!
