Publisher's Description

JEFFERSON'S MASTERPIECE is the amazing and compelling story of why and how the Declaration of Independence became America's birth certificate. Young readers go on an exciting and important historical journey between June 11 and August 2, 1776. They learn why and how Thomas Jefferson wrote the Declaration of Independence. It was not an assignment that he wanted. "All eyes were fixed on Jefferson, who sat with his head bowed. The only sound in the room was the ticking of the grandfather clock that stood beside the window. He raised his head and looked momentarily into the face of each man. They watched as he crossed his arms and cupped his chin with his left hand. He stared at the floor in front of him. More time passed until he scanned the face of each man again. 'If you are determined, ' he finally said, 'I will do as well as I can.' " Young readers also follow the debate in the Second Continental Congress when the 13 colonies declare their independence from Great Britain, and watch the delegates edit, approve and sign the Declaration of Independence. The author included in the narrative the military conflicts that took place between the American Continental Army and the British Redcoats in order to show his young readers that the fight for America's freedom took place in the halls of Congress and on the battlefield. In addition to a finely crafted story, the Declaration of Independence Library - the appendix - provides young readers with an extensive digest of information that will enhance their understanding and appreciation of the Declaration of Independence and the signers. The Thomas Jefferson Foundation's Monticello Classroom recommends JEFFERSON'S MASTERPIECE to students and teachers.
