Thomas Jefferson is revered as one of the visionary founding fathers of our country, but his tenure as governor of Virginia during the Revolutionary War nearly derailed his legacy. Led by Benedict Arnold, the British took Virginia with relative ease and Jefferson was forced to flee his beloved home. The memories and lessons gleaned from these events had a profound effect on the rest of Jefferson’s life. Michael Kranish is a reporter in the Boston Globe’s Washington bureau and the author of Flight from Monticello: Thomas Jefferson at War.
