History Making in the Making by Rebecca L. Bowman, (November 1998), E332.2 .A5 1998N

Identifier: id4031

Scope and Contents

An astute historian aware of the simplification or misrepresentation that time and a historian’s bias can bring, Jefferson took pains to establish an accurate but positive image for posterity. He encouraged the critical study of history of all nations, and endeavored to secure America’s history from antiquity to the revolutionary period. Louis Girardin was enlisted to write a history of Jefferson’s time based on Jefferson’s extensive collection of books and documents.
