THe road to a great future
My name is Thomas Jefferson. I was the third president of the United States of America. I did a lot of stuff in my life. I was also a author of the Declaration of Independence, author of the Virginia statute of freedom, father of the University of Virginia, and much much more. I lived in Ablemarle county, Virginia.
I was the president from 1801-1809. I was born on April 13, 1743. I love books, after the White house was burned in 1815 I had the library of congress restocked with 6,487 books.
I built my house called "Monticello" which means little mountain. It took more than 40 years to complete. But it was well worth it. It's 33 rooms with 4 floors! But what I'm most proud of is being the author of the declaration of independence. Author of the stature of Virginia and religious freedom, and the father of the university of Virginia.
