The care of human life and happiness, and not their destruction, is the first and only object of good government. ~ Thomas Jefferson
“M” is for Monticello, as in the home of Thomas Jefferson.
I had the opportunity to visit this historical home while my son was attending law school at the University of Virginia. What a fascinating tour it was! Not only the home itself, but the surrounding grounds all had so many interesting facts and stories. If you enjoy history you will definitely love learning more about Monticello.
