Tribute to Thomas Jefferson (1826)
Our country is fortunate that we can draw guidance from an extraordinary wellspring of wisdom–the vision of Thomas Jefferson. President Jefferson was the founder and leader who was best able to articulate our nation’s highest ideals and lay the foundation for America’s hope and promise. His perseverance and genius helped consolidate the victory of the American Revolution and his legacy is surprisingly relevant today.
