Book Description:
This book offers information on the President's early education, professional career, military service or political service prior to the presidency. Thomas Jefferson of Virginia was the first president to be inaugurated in Washington, D.C. He wrote two of the most important documents in the history of the U.S.: The Delcaration of Independence and the basis for the first amendment to the Constitution, which guarantees freedom of religion and worship. Although he was not a great public speaker, his eloquent and powerful words carried a strong, but silent voice. He was a lover of books and his book collection, (over 6,000 books)helped to start the Library of Congress. He served for forty years in many different aspects. In reading this biography, you will see the various ways in which this great president influenced our nation, as Governor of Virginia, Vice President of the U.S. under John Adams, Minister to France, Governor of Virginia, Founder of the Univ. of Virginia and free thinker who said "I have sworn upon the altar of God eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man."
