Channon told us Monticello, Jefferson's home, was a "Must See".
Channon is so smart. The tour of Jefferson's home and land was fascinating. Within minutes of our delightful guide, Celeste's introduction, Al whispered to me, "I want her job!"
Trust Channon, Trust me, if you ever make the opportunity you will be very happy you did.
Perhaps even more interesting than the house, was the Slavery Tour. Our guide for that was also superb.
How does a man who wrote our Declaration OWN people? The slavery history was riveting.
Has anyone read a good book about Sally Hemings?
I'd love to know more about this black slave, who had several children with Jefferson.
The gardens were lovely despite the VIRGINIA heat.
Oh Thank you Katherine for the fan I wore around my neck all day.These lilies are from my own little garden. Zach gave them to me for Mother's day at least 5 years ago and they come back glorious yearly. I LOVE the color.
Have you been to Monticello? Do you love American History? What' tour must I go on in your town?
(I'd tell you to go on the Chicago Architecture Tour by Riverboat in Chicago.)
