An Evening with Thomas Jefferson


Thomas Jefferson was one of the most remarkable men of American history. He was part scholar, writer, scientist, geographer, musician, philosopher, sociologist, and politician. He wrote the Declaration of Independence, the Virginia Statute for Religious Liberty, the Plan for the Government of the Western Territories, and an important book, Notes on the State of Virginia. He was a revolutionary and a nation builder.

Humanities Scholar and writer, Clay Jenkinson, brings Jefferson to life in his portrayal of the 3rd president with such authenticity that the viewer may forget that Mr. Jefferson is not actually standing in front of them. The program focuses on Jefferson’s life and accomplishments, but the audience will have the opportunity to ask Mr. Jefferson questions as well on any subject, an experience that will give everyone a new appreciation of history and the our Founding Fathers in a truly inspirational, educational and entertaining way.


Have you ever wanted to meet one of our Founding Fathers? Have you thought about questions that you would love to ask? Well, your opportunity has arrived! Thomas Jefferson is coming to town!

On Tuesday, October 24, at 7:00pm, come to the Thomasville Municipal Auditorium for a Q&A with President Jefferson himself! The author of the Declaration of Independence was a revolutionary and a nation builder. His contributions to this country are priceless.
