I believe Jefferson was a slave master and fathered two families. His black concubine served the family and most likely milked for his white children.
He died broke with a huge amount of debt screwing someone else over. Hardly a man worthy of admiration. He was fortunate to be schooled and intelligent. He wrote and spoke creatively in his day and was born at just the right time.
Martin Luther (father of the Lutheran protestant movement) was a lawyer convert. A rebellious drunkard who was fortunate to be schooled and intelligent. He wrote and spoke creatively and was born at just the right time.
people be you own hero...
