Nice dive into some of Thomas Jefferson's life and writings. Well put together between the texts to read and the lectures.

Great Course! Not being from here, this course helped me understand some fundamental differences between Canadian and American history; and the obvious differences in our cultures today.

Good course with vital information about Mr. Jefferson. Lectures were well done and helped that they were split up at times.

Absolutely LOVED this class. Professor Onuf is passionate, realistic and on the money in terms of explaining to the masses who Jefferson was and what shaped his thought process through and post-revolution. HIGHLY enjoyed this class
