Happy Birthday, T. J.

Happy Birthday, Thomas Jefferson.

Born 13 April 1743. Shadwell, Albemarle, Virginia.

When I began work on a book about Randolph Jefferson and his Buckingham County plantation, Snowden, it was inevitable that Thomas Jefferson would play a big role in the story.  And, he did!

The Jefferson Brothers provides an unusual, in depth, look at President Jefferson as a big brother, enough older than his only brother to assume (in a limited way) the role of surrogate father.

What to learn more about Thomas Jefferson, family man? Visit the Thomas Jefferson Encyclopedia.  There you will find seventy-eight results for “Personal Life.”

The Jefferson Brothers is available online at Braughler Books.

    I think you have a typo– Year of birth is 1743.
