Abstract:

The first part of a two-part documentary which examines the life of Thomas Jefferson, third President of the United States and author of the Declaration of Independence. In this segment a young Jefferson is transformed by the fire of the Enlightenment into his country's most articulate voice for human liberty. Torn between family life at Monticello and his passion for politics, Jefferson suffers heartrending personal loss, even as he gives voice to a new democratic government. He then journeys to Paris as U.S. Minister to France for George Washington and supports the rising French Revolution.
