Step inside Thomas Jefferson’s White House
James B. Conroy, author of the award-winning Lincoln's White House, captures Jefferson's pivotal leadership role and the intrigues and ambitions of a deeply divided young nation.
As the first president to occupy the White House for an entire term, Thomas Jefferson shaped the president’s residence, literally and figuratively, more than any of its other occupants. Remarkably enough, however, though many books have immortalized Jefferson’s Monticello, none has been devoted to the vibrant look, feel, and energy of his still more famous home from 1801 to 1809. In Jefferson's White House, James B. Conroy offers a vivid, highly readable account of how life was lived in the White House and the young nation’s rustic capital.
