"See Monticello, Jefferson's..." Charlottesville Favorite Tip by noahsdad

Charlottesville General: 5 reviews and 8 photos

Favorite thing: See Monticello, Jefferson's home. See the books and inventions that engaged his mind. Reflect on a life that took him to places like Philadelphia and Paris. Imagine him anticipating reports from Lewis and Clark. Finally, remember the slaves. Whether the Sally Hemings story is true or not, the good as well as the tragic have become the heritage of all Americans.
