Thomas Jefferson’s America


Product Description

Thomas Jefferson lived a dozen lifetimes in one. Patriot, scientist, architect, president, author of the Declaration of Independence, he preferred above all titles, “father” and “grandfather.” Yet time and again, demand for his unique skills drew him from the quiet home he loved. In this recording, you will thrill to true stories of war and peace, loyalty and betrayal, battles against empires and struggles against slavery.
