About this product
- DescriptionMartha Jefferson is the first and only biography of Thomas Jefferson's greatest love and true kindred spirit, who died an untimely death at the young age of thirty-three in 1782. Drawing on a wealth of newly probed sources-including family letters, documents, and the handwritten tes left by Jefferson's famed biographer, Dumas Malone-William G. Hyland Jr. captures the charm, sophistication, and grace, as well as a profound sense of history, of this little kwn and elusive figure who, until w, has been a mere footte to the story of America's founding. Hyland brings us a conflicted and honest Martha Jefferson, who endured the Revolution as valiantly as some men-defending her very doorstep from raiding British troops-and presided over the domestic life of the Jeffersons' little mountain, Monticello, during her husband's long absences and historic rise to power. A revealing and insightful look at an often overlooked American woman, this book provides a unique and previously unexplored understanding of America's Revolutionary Era, and the men and women upon whose bravery, talent, and resolve our nation was founded.
