    There is no doubt that each of the Founding Fathers offered significant contributions to the developing nation. Was Jefferson the most accomplished?

    He spoke five languages, had interests in science, philosophy, architecture, horticulture, and philosophy. In service he was Virginia representative to the Continental Congress, Governor of Virginia, US Diplomat and Minister in France, US Secretary of State, US Vice-President, and United States President. As President he would oversee the Louisiana Purchase and secure room for the future expansion of the newly formed country.

    That is quite a lot and only on his public service side. He was also a very personal individual with a wealth of interests that he explored while at his home in Monticello. Was the the most accomplished Founding Father? What do you think?
