Thomas Jefferson grew up on his father's ranch in Western Virginia. He came from a family that owned slaves, was wealthy, and had a rich history in agriculture. His paternal links were equally wealthier, with his mother coming from a line of one of the most aristocratic families in the history of the land.
The affluence from whence he was brought up however, did not blind his vision. From an early age, he had his work cut out, championing for the rights of the oppressed. We follow his journey through life, highlighting some of the major spectacles in his life, in his pursuit of reforms and the liberation of a country.
We also see the trials and tribulations that he had to go through in a bid to rid the country of the colonial rule that had been established by Great Britain, by liberating one colony after the other, until the entire country was free of colonial rule.
We also look at the major events like the introduction of a unitary form of currency that has since lived on to see the US dollar become a major benchmarking currency all over the world. The following is an insight into the life, the struggle and the eventual reforms that were brought about by Thomas Jefferson, the Father of Liberty.
