"History Personified"

Sep 16, 2017

On this week's episode of "History Personified," I take a deep look at the intriguing relationship between American Founding Fathers John Adams and Thomas Jefferson with Pulitzer Prize-winning author Gordon S. Wood.

Adams and Jefferson came from very different backgrounds. Adams was from Massachusetts, and his family was blue collar and working class. Jefferson, meanwhile, was a Southerner whose family was much more aristocratic. They both became involved in the burgeoning American government, and worked together on the Declaration of Independence. A deepening political divide led to a rift that took years to heal, but what resulted was some of the most intriguing personal correspondence in American history.
