Overall I think Thomas Jefferson is a great man. He did so much for our country and really set the USA up with a better future. Thomas did many things like set up public colleges, be president, invent gadgets, and by far the most important has to be writing the declaration of independence. This article he wrote made us an independent country, and installed many of his beliefs to the Americans. If TJ we around in our time, He'd be doing exactly what he did back then, trying to make a difference in his country and for his country.
