The Best Of Our Knowledge #1179

Apr 24, 2013

One of the truisms of life is the older we get, the better we were when we were younger.  The same seems to be true when it comes to the founding fathers of the US.  And the founder who seems to be getting the most attention and praise over the past few years is Thomas Jefferson.  Today on The Best Of Our Knowledge it’s time for another History Class, focusing on a new biography of Jefferson and what he meant...and continues to mean...to the nation he helped create.

We’ll also spend an academic minute looking at another time in history, the time that inspired Les Misérables.
