Thomas Jefferson Bust
"When injustice becomes law, resistance becomes duty."
Author of the Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom, he helped establish the first state with true freedom for all faiths. Author of the Declaration of Independence, he brought freedom and justice to the citizens of the country.
Founder of the University of Virginia, the first school based on unlimited thought, he brought secular education to future leaders. He was also Governor of Virginia, Ambassador to France, Secretary of State, and President of the United States. His huge collection of books became the Library of Congress. Like so many of his time, he struggled with slavery and its place in Jeffersonian Democracy. His home, Monticello, near Charlottesville, VA graces the reverse of the nickel. Jefferson was a life long advocate of freedom and liberty.
