More from the Thomas Jefferson Hour
"I wanted a much looser system of self-government amongst the students."
— Thomas Jefferson, as portrayed by Clay S. Jenkinson
Prompted by a listener letter, Clay answers the question, “If Thomas Jefferson appeared before you today, what would you want to show him from our time?”
Jefferson wrote, "I regret that I am now to die in the belief that the useless sacrifice of themselves, by the generation of 1776, to acquire self government and happiness to their country, is to be thrown away by the unwise and unworthy passions of their sons, and that my only consolation is to be that I live not to weep over it."
