Thomas Jefferson was a very busy man. He drafted the Declaration of Independence, was the United States' Minister to France, Secretary of State, Vice President, and America's third President. In the midst of a prolific public career, Jefferson maintained a vibrant private life: father, friend, farmer, inventor, and America's first great architect.
Host Steve Thomas explores the private versus the public Jefferson as reflected in the restoration of Poplar Forest, his hideaway retreat, considered to be one of his most extraordinary architectural achievements. He also travels to two of Jefferson's other monumental achievements: the Virginia State Capitol, Jefferson's first public building, designed while in Paris in 1785; and the University of Virginia, his last major architectural endeavor, designed in 1817.
