DVD BONUS FEATURES:
• "Thomas Jefferson: The Pursuit of Liberty" video - This award-winning video documentary, shot at major Jefferson sites, explores Thomas Jefferson's life and career and offers insights into his achievements. As one scholar recently noted, "He was, of all the Founding Fathers, indeed of all the men of the eighteenth century, the most contemporary. What he wrote and what he did - about the nature of society and government, the relations of man to government, the meaning of republicanism and democracy, the significance of education - is as relevant today as it was in the eighteenth century."
• Monticello music video - Monticello has never been more vibrant! Editor Eleni Papagiannis has matched Russ Finley's graceful cinematography with inspiring music to produce what is probably the best Monticello music video you've ever seen. Turn it up and the foundations of democracy will move under your feet!
