Thomas Jefferson: From Boy to Man

Much has been written about Thomas Jefferson, from his drafting the Declaration of Independence in 1776 until his death in 1826. Yet, little is known about our iconic founding father's first 31 years of life (1743-74): adolescence, life at Shadwell and Tuckahoe, friends, boarding schools, family deaths, college years, courting Martha, law practice, married life, Shadwell fire, earthquakes, flooding, etc. Thomas Jefferson-From Boy to Man is a biographical and historical account of Jefferson's journey to manhood, “To understand the man, it is important to learn about the boy.”
