Having borne the brunt of a smear campaign that started more than two centuries ago, the reputation and character of American President Thomas Jefferson shows considerable tarnish, as lies and misunderstandings have gathered on his legacy.
In "The Jefferson Lies" noted early America historian Barton scours out the truth. Did Jefferson really have children by his slave, Sally Hemings? Did he really abandon the faith of his family and want to rewrite the Scripture? What is the truth about his slaveholding and his statements that all are created equal?
All of these questions deserve the cleansing light of truth. In "The Jefferson Lies" Barton has gone through the historical records, combed the original documents and letters and examined the recent evidence, and his findings will upset the establishment. Barton reveals eyewitness accounts of contemporaries and Jefferson's own words help reveal the true man, the real Thomas Jefferson. As a reader, you will have the joy and surprise of meeting him for the very first time.
