Happy Birthday, Jefferson

Sully, Thomas Jefferson, 1821

Thomas Jefferson was born on this day in 1743.

I had rather be shut up in a very modest cottage with my books, my family and a few old friends, dining on simple bacon, and letting the world roll on as it liked, than to occupy the most splendid post, which any human power can give.

Thomas Jefferson
