Jeffersonia Blog Weekend Edition: 3/14-15

March 15th Bicentennial

March 15th Bicentennial Celebration

On Sunday, March 15th the current landlords of Monticello are hosting a free gathering honoring Mr. Jefferson’s return to Monticello in 1809 following his gig as two-term President of the United States of America (making this a bicentennial celebration).

Bill Barker will portray the former Master-of-the-Mountain during the festivities (a role which he will be featured in Thomas Jefferson’s World – the new flick that will play at the brand new visitor’s center).

Also appearing are the Williamsburg Field Musick fife and drum corp (last blogged about here) who will rock many a classic tune from the 1700s and 1800s.
