THE JEFFERSON BROTHERS

Celebrate Independence Day!

. . . by learning more about Thomas Jefferson and his lesser known brother, Randolph, Squire of Snowden and Citizen of Buckingham County.

The Jefferson Brothers introduces Randolph Jefferson, bringing him out from the shadow of his famous sibling, focusing on the years during which their paths crossed. Over twelve years Randolph’s senior, Thomas Jefferson stood in for the father his brother never knew, guiding his education and helping the younger man establish himself as a successful planter in central Virginia. Randolph’s life at Snowden, during and after the American Revolution, illuminates everyday world of planters in central Virginia. Additionally, The Jefferson Brothers introduces a new Thomas Jefferson, not the great statesman of monumental intellect, but the thoughtful brother and dedicated farmer.
