Peggy Noonan on Thomas Jefferson
Peggy Noonan has a wonderful, thoughtful piece in today's Wall Street Journal about Thomas Jefferson and the Declaration of Independence. She writes particularly about some of the crucial edits made to the document during deliberations by Congress. These edits pertain to the special relationship between the British and the American people, a relationship that endures and that, hopefully, will not ever be allowed to weaken or fade. I highly recommend the article on this 4th of July weekend. Happy Independence Day everyone!
