Summary

Unveiling the true and forgotten history…

The reputation and character of American president Thomas Jefferson has borne the brunt of a smear campaign that started more than two centuries ago and continues through lies and misunderstandings whose roots lie deep within today’s political correctness that is bent on reshaping the nation’s founding and founders within its modern mold. The result is a badly distorted image of this beloved founding father.

Noted early-American historian David Barton sets the record straight by addressing seven Jeffersonian myths head-on, including:

Did he really father a child by his slave Sally Hemings? Did he really want to rewrite the Bible? What is the truth about his slaveholding and his statements that all are created equal? Did he really advocate the separation of church and state as purported today?

All of these questions deserve the cleansing light of truth that Barton brings through Jefferson’s own words and the eyewitness testimony of contemporaries as found in original documents and letters. Barton shows the true Thomas Jefferson whom most listeners will have the joy and surprise of meeting him for the very first time!
