Summary: Latin for “heavenly mountain,” Monticello’s founders supported Thomas Jefferson’s populist ideals, naming their village for his Virginia home. Center of the Town of Thompson and seat of Sullivan County since 1809, Monticello was founded in 1804 and incorporated in 1830 by John and Samuel Jones. Tanning, lumbering, farming, and manufacturing gave way to tourism. The railroad came in 1871. A fire in 1909 decimated the downtown, but automobiles and an artery nicknamed “the Quickway” connected New York City to the mountains and made Monticello a recreation center. The years 1920 to 1930 saw a population increase of 48 percent. Sidewalks brimmed with shoppers as Broadway, lined with stately and beautiful shade trees, clattered with traffic at all hours. Slightly over an hour from Manhattan, Monticello had two identities: a community built and sustained by workers, residents, and businesses and a busy “borscht belt” vacation center of boardinghouses, hotels, bungalows, and recreation.

Summary: The inherited plantation home and burial place of President Thomas Jefferson, Monticello was an extensive property with tobacco and mixed crops. Monticello: A Picture of the Past highlights the Italian Renaissance architecture used in the main plantation house, the history of the name Monticello, and Jefferson's famous gardens on the premises. Designed by Jefferson himself, the mansion's style was inspired by Neoclassical columns and structures made famous in the buildings of the Republic of Venice, largely designed by architect Andrea Palladio. As years passed, architects and historians found many unique aspects of Jefferson's designs, such as portico entries, red brick construction, classical moldings, Chinese railings and octagonal forms. This style became known as Jeffersonian architecture. Coming from the Italian for "little mountain," Monticello housed Jefferson's private gardens, where he frequently experimented with crossbreeding plants to create new species. This would continue to be his primary hobby until his death. While thousands of people visit Monticello each year, most Americans know the building well from its appearance on the reverse of the U.S. nickel.

Deforming American Political Thought
  • Author : Michael Shapiro
  • Publisher : University Press of Kentucky
  • Release Date : 2006-10-20
  • Category: Political Science
  • Pages : 272
  • ISBN Code: 0813171539

Summary: By affirming the relativity of the American historical imagination, political theorist Michael J. Shapiro offers a powerful polemic against ethnocentric interpretations of American culture and politics. Deforming American Political Thought analyzes issues that range from the nature of Thomas Jefferson’s vision of an egalitarian nation to the persistence of racial inequality. Shapiro offers a multifaceted argument that transcends the myopic scope of traditional political discourse. Deforming American Political Thought illustrates the various ways in which history, architecture, film, music, literature, and art provide approaches to the comprehension of diverse facets of American political thought from the founding to the present. Using these seemingly disparate disciplines as a framework, Shapiro paints a picture of American political philosophy that is as distinctive as it enlightening. Shapiro explores the historically vital role of dissenting points of view in American politics and asserts its continuing importance in today’s political landscape. Exploring such diverse works as slave narratives, contemporary films, genre fiction, and blues and jazz music, Shapiro reveals that there have always been dissenting voices casting doubt on the moral purpose and exceptionalism of the American mind. An unprecedented inquiry into American politics, Deforming American Political Thought will surely serve to reinvigorate discussions about the essence of American political thought.

The Presidents' Last Years
  • Author : Homer F. Cunningham
  • Publisher : McFarland & Company Incorporated Pub
  • Release Date : 1989
  • Category: History
  • Pages : 335
  • ISBN Code: N.A

Summary: These 35 men who have served as president have lived an average of 12 years after they left the White House. Time has obscured the fact that Thomas Jefferson, James Monroe and Ulysses S. Grant all died bankrupt. Or that John Tyler in his last days prepared to fight against the United States prior to the Civil War. The fascinating narratives in this book describe these shifts from public to private lives against the backdrop of the social and political currents of their day. All 35 deceased presidents are covered; those who died in office have their final weeks and days described. The scholar or general reader will learn as much about the presidents' personalities from their years of retirement as from their years in office. A poignant and meaningful body of history has now been assembled about the office of the president and the men who have served.
