Happy Birthday Thomas Jefferson

Spring is here! Time to wish Thomas Jefferson a Happy Birthday!

Born on April 13, 1743, at Shadwell in Albemarle, Virginia, Jefferson’s contributions to American politics and culture continue to stimulate all manner of conversation and study.

At Monticello, interpretation of his life at home is continually expanding. Visit Monticello online and take a virtual tour of Jefferson’s mountaintop home.

While studying the life of his younger brother, Randolph, I was delighted to learn more about the private Thomas Jefferson—the surrogate father, the big brother, the uncle. In the end, Thomas was such an important part of Randolph Jefferson’s story that he shaped the title of my book: The Jefferson Brothers.

You can purchase a copy at Monticello’s shop online and support the good work being done by the Thomas Jefferson Foundation.
