Why did you choose to join the Campaign?
The Campaign provided a Jeffersonian moment, offering everyone a chance to help preserve and protect a legacy of global importance. So many aspects of Monticello appeal to me , but I have three special loves: the ongoing scholarship, the historic archaeology, and the stunning vegetable garden. Each of these provide new insights and understanding of the past and its influence on our lives today.
