Sights encountered on this tour:
A firebrand of the written word, Jefferson penned the very document that gave rise to a great experiment in Democracy and to an 8 years long war -The Declaration of Independence. Holding many important positions and helping to cast America as a new, powerful force in the world, Thomas Jefferson had a monumental impact on modern society with his many famous political successes and material inventions.
Surrounded by Cherry trees, the Jefferson Memorial, a great symbol of liberty, stands on the southern end of the Tidal Basin, allowing it a uniquely unencumbered view across the water towards the Washington Monument.
