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. Publisher: Dover Publications. Paperback, 101 pages. Measures 5" x 8"x0.25". Weighs 3.1 oz.

When Thomas Jefferson was young, Virginia was still a colony of England. Jefferson thought that many English laws and taxes were unfair, so he studied hard to become a lawyer and help make better laws. Soon he and others came to believe that the colonies should become a new country, and Jefferson was chosen to write the Declaration of Independence. As the third president of the United States, he focused on exploring the country and making it grow. His fairness and love of learning made him one of the most beloved presidents of all time. Publisher: Random House Books for Young Readers. Paperback, 66 pages. Measures 5.2" x 7.6" x 0.2".
