Thomas Jefferson: The Failures and Greatness of an Ordinary Man
- By: Jonathan Sistine
- Narrated by: Jim D. Johnston
- Length: 3 hrs and 51 mins
The real Thomas Jefferson was an ordinary man, with all the usual failings. Molded by the culture of the Virginia planter class, he fought against tyranny while oppressing his own slaves.

Yet his accomplishments are too spectacular to be denied. The Declaration of Independence, the Louisiana Purchase, he even abolished taxes (for a while).
