Thomas Jefferson: Creating a Nationby Lynda Pflueger
Our government and rights as citizens would not be as they are today if it were not for the contributions of Thomas Jefferson. As author of the Declaration of Independence, he wrote those famous words that said all Americans enjoyed the rights of "Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness." Besides being remembered as the author of the Declaration of Independence, Jefferson is remembered as a great president. In Thomas Jefferson: Creating a Nation, author Lynda Pflueger explores not only his public life in politics but also his passion for education and learning. Jefferson received funding and created the University of Virginia, which he considered to be one of his greatest achievements. Jefferson was an important founding father who used his wisdom and ability to lead to serve the state of Virginia and the United States.
