Library Seeks to Save Jefferson’s Papers

Style Weekly | August 17, 2011
In three years, Thomas Jefferson negotiated the Articles of Confederation, helped secure French aid for the Revolutionary War and deployed soldiers to fight Native Americans on Virginia’s western frontier. Now, the Library of Virginia is restoring all 2,500 of Jefferson’s executive papers, which date from 1779 to 1781, to ensure they survive as long as his legacy.
