Description - Autobiography of Thomas Jefferson by Thomas Jefferson

During his remarkable lifetime, Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826) served his country in many capacities, including as the third President of the United States. But ultimately, this gifted individual - an accomplished architect, naturalist, and linguist - wished to be remembered primarily as the writer of the Declaration of Independence. In this autobiography, begun in 1821 when the author was 77, Jefferson touches fleetingly upon his early years before focusing on the period during which he wrote the Declaration. This edition features a fascinating first draft of the document, in addition to Jefferson's comments on the Articles of Confederation. Other highlights include his firsthand observations on the early stages of the French Revolution, obtained while serving as Minister to France, as well as insights from his many other public roles: wartime Governor of Virginia, Washington's Secretary of State, and Vice President during the John Adams administration. This brief memoir provides a rare opportunity to share the reflections of a Founding Father as written in his own words.
