June 1776. Why Adams choose Thomas Jeffe

June 1776. Why Adams choose Thomas Jefferson to draft the Declaration of Independence. “You inquire why so young a man as Mr. Jefferson was placed at the head of the committee for preparing a Declaration of Independence? I answer: It was the Frankfort advice to place Virginia at the head of everything [referring to an earlier meeting of some colonial leaders in Frankfort, New York].” Jefferson brought “a reputation for literature, science, and a happy talent for composition.” http://www.revolution240.com #TBT Throwback Thursday #LovingAmerica, http://ow.ly/i/eoRB7
