There has been considerable time spent in writing the life and accomplishments of Thomas Jefferson. Thomas Jefferson, although he had several children, never had a son. Therefore, Thomas Jefferson Randolph, the son of Martha Jefferson Randolph, was the most direct male descendant of the second President.
However, no one has made an attempt to write the biography of the grandson . It is particularly appropriate to write his life not only because of Thomas Jefferson Randolph's famous lineage but because he was an ardent adherent to the Democratic principles of his illustrious grandfather.
