THOMAS JEFFERSON'S EPITAPH, WHICH HE COMPOSED HIMSELF

Here Jefferson declared what he felt what he would want to be most remembered for. On the monument below the epitaph were carved the birthdate of April 2, 1743 and the date of death July 4, 1826. Quite the coincidence that he died on the anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence?
