When Mr. Jefferson Came to Philadelphia: What I Learned of Freedom, 1776
Ann Turner (au); Mark Hess (il). Ned is just a boy helping his mother run their boardinghouse the summer that a tall, thin man named Mr. Jefferson comes to stay. He & other important colonists are there for the Congress in Phila., to debate their charges against King George in England, which have erupted into a violent war. As Mr. Jefferson spends night after night writing in his room, Ned forgets the simple things he wants, & thinks instead about the extraordinary idea everyone is starting to talk about -- freedom -- & the changes it might soon bring to their lives. With hauntingly beautiful words & historically accurate paintings, this book combines the fictional character of Ned with authentic details about Thomas Jefferson’s lodging during the writing of the Declaration of Independence.
