History 101: Fort Jefferson by laureng2 History 101: Fort Jefferson by laureng2
He must now prepare for battle against Fort Hamilton! XD




Yeah, I am currently obsessed with our 3rd President more than usual...the man would buy a book a day! In this case, he had a little extra left over in his library...

I love how Thomas Jefferson, in the middle of his life, donates his entire collection of books to Congress after the burning of Washington and still manages to buy back a huge collection afterward. THAT, my lady, is a true biblioholic. He's a prince among bibliophiles.

His daughter was so pissed too. They had to make payments on the house and he spent it on books XD You can blame his addiction on George Wythe, another mentor of his back in his college days. Oh, here I go again, better stop lol

George Wythe, hmm? I'm intrigued, if you're willing to continue.

George Wythe, poor soul, was Jefferson's mentor during law school. He was a man of the Enlightenment and made sure Jefferson knew the law as it was meant to be learned. Wythe also loved books...a lot. So, he got Jefferson into book collecting, thing is, the two started a sort of "contest". To see who could out-read the other. Well, the poor guy was murdered, poisoned with arsenic, but in his will he left Jefferson a big chunk of his library. And Jefferson never stopped collecting :)

You know, now that you talk about that, I think I remember hearing about him. I feel sorry that the guy had to go like that. I bet Jefferson mourned such a great lost mentor.

There's a new book out called "I am Murdered". It's about George Wythe and Jefferson, saw it at Borders this weekend. Just throwing that out there, if you want to read more. :)

And yes, he was very, very sad :( But he took consolation in the fact that he was left something to remember him by

Oh god, no. Just no. Jefferson, PUT AWAY THE MACHINE GUN! (I can so imagine Washington saying that to him, if he had as much books when he was like, seven.)

What would Fort Hamilton be made out of I wonder? In any case, I am looking forward to the epic battle!
