     As we all know, it was Thomas Jefferson who wrote the Declaration of the Independence.
He wrote it in two weeks, and after a few changes, it was accepted by the Congress. As a result,
he became famous.
      Born in Virginia, Thomas Jefferson, a brilliant student at school and almost talented lawyer later,
was much interested in politics.
     Jefferson was elected Governor of Virginia in 1779, and he was sent to France as the representative
of the American government in 1784. Sixteen years later, at the age of 57, he was elected president
after Washington and Adams.
      Far from a handsome man, he was tall with long arms and big hands. Jefferson, who was an amusing
talker in conversation but a poor speaker, was generally good-natured. 
      Jefferson was regarded as a defender of freedom on America. As a president, he protected the right
of free speech. Interestingly enough, in his eight years as President, Jefferson never vetoed a bill which
Congress had passed. He did a lot in organizing the new University of Virginia. 
    Thomas Jefferson died on July the fourth, 1826, the 50th anniversary of American Independence.
