James B. Conroy, author of the award-winning Lincoln’s White House, captures Jefferson’s pivotal leadership role and the intrigues and ambitions of a deeply divided young nation.
As the first president to occupy the White House for an entire term, Thomas Jefferson shaped the president’s residence, literally and figuratively, more than any of its other occupants. Remarkably enough, however, though many books have immortalized Jefferson’s Monticello, none has been devoted to the vibrant look, feel, and energy of his still more famous and consequential home from 1801 to 1809. In Monticello on the Potomac, James B. Conroy, author of the award-winning Lincoln’s White House offers a vivid, highly listenable account of how life was lived in Jefferson’s White House and the young nation’s rustic capital.

Jefferson From Another Perspective
Enjoyed the story and the narration of Jefferson's days in the White House as America's 3rd President (1801 - 1809).
