Thomas Jefferson

Thomas Jefferson was the second President of the United States and, without a doubt, one of America's greatest presidents. Years before he took office as the president, he served his country as one of the men who fought for independence from Great Britain. He was the primary author of the American Declaration of Independence - in his case he fought not with weapons but with words and leadership.
