Our Independence

We all know that today is to celebrate the Declaration of our independence. But here are a few facts you may not know about its author and be even more impressed with him for the struggles he endured.

Before 1776, Thomas Jefferson had five daughters and one son.  All of them but one died before reaching the age of three.
And in 1776, Jefferson’s mother died. His wife, Martha, wouldn’t live until the end of the Revolutionary War, dying in 1782. At the age of only 33.
