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.
** A note from IowaChupacabra: Hello! I am attempting to maintain Blue Grass Tom’s geocaches. Have fun as you travel and explore up and down these Iowa back country roads to find the geocaches in this series. As you do so, if you happen upon a wet log, torn bag, or cracked/damaged/missing container, and graciously make the choice to add/replace paper/bag or change out/replace a container, I would certainly appreciate it and Thank You for the help. I attempt to make a run through the area every few months to fix the problems noted in the logs, but there’s always something! Thank You!
