On a hot day in Virginia, I know nothing more comforting than a fine spiced pickle, brought up trout-like from the sparkling depths of the aromatic jar below the stairs of Aunt Sally’s cellar.—Thomas Jefferson, 3rd President of The United States of America
At the age of 33, Thomas Jefferson (1743 to 1826) drafted the Declaration of Independence. More a writer than an orator, he was elected President in 1800, serving two terms. Monticello, his house on the hill outside Washington, D.C., is known for its beautiful views over the Potomac and the surrounding countryside.
