159 Words1 Page
The history of the United States was heavily influenced by several bright and intelligent individuals. One of these people were Thomas Jefferson. In elementary school, you probably don’t learn much about him, but once you get to middle and high school your teachers will get into more depth about who he was and what he did to make America a better place to live in. Once you get to know more and more about him the story of his life begins to unfold, and you begin to see the side of him that most don’t know about. Most people know him as the writer of The Declaration of Independence, the 3rd President of the United States and a founding father. However, he had accomplished much more in his 83 year lifetime than just these achievements.
