This is a biography in title only
Extremely brief review of Jefferson’s life. This does not pass as a biography. Commentary inspired by current political conflicts is inappropriate in this context.
- Ellen Oceanside
Excellent narration, along with an interesting glimpse back to the issues in that era of time. Along with giving us a look at these founders who became leaders. Well done and enjoyed.
