Examining the letters and papers of America’s founding fathers offers a rare opportunity to understand these historical leaders as fathers, lovers, intellectuals, and revolutionaries. Artifacts from George Washington (including one of his earliest letters), Thomas Jefferson (including his scientific notes), John Adams, and Benjamin Franklin form the core of the tour.
