Geocache Description:

2nd in the VP Series.


Thomas Jefferson served as vice-president to President John Adams (are you seeing a pattern here?).  Growing up in Virginia, Jefferson's favorite boyhood pursuits were playing in the woods, practicing the violin and reading.  There were no law schools at the time graduated from William & Mary College, so aspiring lawyers worked under an established attorney.  His teacher put him through five years of training, more than double the usual number of years.  By the time Jefferson was admitted to the bar, he was already one of the most learned lawyers in America.  He and Adams both died on the same day hours apart, but that story will be in the Presidential Trivia Series, which is a short series.
