VIRTUAL TALK: “Jefferson’s White House” with James B. Conroy
June 11 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFREE
JEFFERSON’S WHITE HOUSE
Monticello on the Potomac
Welcome to the White House. Jefferson’s White House, “a lovely Irish-Palladian white palace set in the mud and muck” of the nation’s capital, under construction and fraught with the political tension of a young and ambitious nation. Thomas Jefferson was the first president to occupy the White House for an entire term, let alone two, and the one who shaped it—literally and figuratively—the most. James B. Conroy, author of the award-winning Lincoln’s White House offers a vivid, highly readable account of the residence’s architecture and furnishings—and the amazing collection of people who passed through these iconic doors during Jefferson’s presidency: family members, political friends and foes, and the free and enslaved staff who kept everything running smoothly against the backdrop of the raw, rough City of Washington.
