The political season is upon us. I don’t really like it and I’m not much of a follower of it all. But, I came across this image I took at Thomas Jefferson’s memorial in DC and it got me to wondering. Without going to your iPhone or Wikipedia, what was his political party? Why, exactly, did someone feel a need to memorialize the man (wasn’t he a slave owner?) with such an elaborate and surely expensive (and beautiful) work of art? I mean is there an Adams memorial? Or Jackson or Monroe? No. But, Thomas Jefferson… it does seem to roll off the tongue.
