Monticello, Virginia

One of the days I was in Virginia I was able to see Monticello's, which was Thomas Jefferson's plantation. It was absolutely beautiful! Jefferson was an amazing inventor, and we were able to see many neat inventions inside his home! My favorite invention was a lazy susan on his desk, and it held five books. He had a very large home with many rooms. His library was my favorite room inside his house, because he had so many books, and at the end of his life he had a total of 9,000 books! One of my favorite quotes from him was "I can not live without books." Jefferson built his home on a large hill, and therefore he named his plantation "Monticello," because it actually means "little mountain top." Being able to see all of what Jefferson had and how he lived, blew my mind, because it is so different than today. I will never forget this day! :)
