"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness." 

The man who wrote those words was born on April 13th, 1743. His name was Thomas Jefferson, and from the moment he was born, America possessed the mind and the voice to express its dreams of human freedom. Today, Cavalcade presents an original radio chronicle and portrait of our 3rd President of the United States, Thomas Jefferson.
