To the other authors of the Declaration “all men” was not what they actually wanted. They then decided to repair his words by stating “all freemen”. Historian David Brion Davis stated, “The most remarkable thing about Jefferson’s stand on slavery is his immense silence.” And later, Davis finds, Jefferson’s emancipation efforts “virtually ceased.” Thomas Jefferson owned an estate called Monticello he inherited the land from his father.

At one end of the tunnel lay the icehouse, at the other the kitchen, a hive of ceaseless activity where the enslaved cooks and their helpers produced one course after another.” with this statement we can see that slaves were quick to respond to every need and want from Jefferson.
Tomb of the Unknown Soldier Essay Shortly after the conclusion of the Civil War which resulted in over 620,000 deaths, the reeling United States of America created the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier to honor the soldiers who passed during service to their country. The monument symbolizes that there is no American who dies in battle that goes unforgotten. I personally have never gotten the privilege to visit the cemetery, but I have had the opportunity to see other monuments such as, the WWII Memorial, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, and the Korean War Veterans Memorial.
