Synopsis

Between 1784 and 1789 Thomas Jefferson spent those years as the American ambassador to France. These were significant years for him, and fateful ones for France, where the Revolution was about to break out. Jefferson is 41 years old when he arrived from Virginia, accompanied by his elder daughter Patsy. His wife had died two years before, and eight years before that he had drafted and signed the Declaration of Independence.
