Michael Kranish, a reporter in the Washington bureau of The Boston Globe, recounts the ideological and political maturation of Thomas Jefferson. Mr. Kranish examines Jefferson’s election to the Virgina governorship and his belief in limited executive power. The author maintains that this belief led to an ill-prepared military presence in Virgina that allowed British forces to take control of the colony. Mr. Kranish reports that during the British invasion, the Virginia legislature was forced to evacuate and Thomas Jefferson was almost captured twice in the process. Michael Kranish presents his book at the Library of Congress in Washington, DC. close
