Portada
Rowman & Littlefield, 2002 - 333 páginas
Virtually no subject—politics, slavery, religion, gardening, music, architecture, natural history, or science to name a few—escaped the interest and attention of Thomas Jefferson. Through nearly 800 excerpts of Jefferson's writing, ranging in length from one sentence to nearly a page, Thomas Jefferson: A Chronology of His Thoughts, allows readers to share in Jefferson's greatest triumphs and achievements and reflects on the moments that truly tested the very fiber of his soul, publicly and privately. From the glory of crafting the Declaration of Independence and assuming the mantle of leadership as the Republic's third president, through his moral struggle with slavery and the agony of losing his young wife and daughter, Jerry Holmes chronicles Jefferson's life through his own words. Thomas Jefferson: A Chronology of His Thoughts will fascinate both the serious Jefferson scholar as well as curious newcomers.
