Overview

Twilight at Monticello: The Final Years of Thomas Jefferson by Alan Pell Crawford

Much Has Been Written About Thomas Jefferson, and with Good Reason: He was the architect of our democracy, a visionary chief executive who expanded this nation's physical boundaries to unimagined lengths. But Twilight at Monticello is entirely new: an unprecedented look at the intimate Jefferson in his final years-from his return to Monticello in 1809 after two terms as president until his death in 1826-that will change the way readers think about this American icon. Basing his narrative on new research and documents culled from the Library of Congress, the Virginia Historical Society, and other special collections, Alan Pell Crawford paints an authoritative, deeply moving portrait of the private Jefferson-the first original depiction of the man in more than a generation.

Read this on the recommendation of Clay Jenkinson of the "Thomas Jefferson Hour" radio broadcast....What a great read, anything but dry. Jefferson came alive for me and I could hardly put the book down. The are a couple of fun surprises, such as who shows up at his funeral. Excellent book group material, plenty of great topics to discuss such as his indebtedness, slaveholding, family chemistry.

An excellent attition to other books about Thomas Jefferson. Adds little know facts about his daily life and opinions on life.
