Jefferson—Then and Now
We can read about Mr. Jefferson's accomplishments and failings, visit the designs he left for us, build up or tear down monuments to him and fellow founders, and do what has always been done with history: describe it through the lens of our current perspective to fulfill our current desires. But what was his perspective? Do we grasp what was happening then?
Tom Pitz has offered his interpretation of Mr. Jefferson since 1987 to a varied audience: from kindergarten classes to medical school faculties, and from local wineries to Mt. Rushmore.
