Did you know that Thomas Jefferson began each morning by soaking his feet in cold water, running two miles, and riding his horse? Growing up, he led the simple life of a farmer and spent his free time writing and reading. As he grew older, he worked to bring the ideas of freedom and democracy to life. The author of the Declaration of Independence, secretary of state for Washington, vice president for Adams, and president for eight years, Jefferson was truly an extraordinary man.
