If this material were in the context of Jefferson as an architect, say an entry Thomas Jefferson, architect with a redirect from here and from Thomas Jefferson, then the informatioon that will eventually come here would be more meaningful. --Wetman 12:50, 27 Oct 2004 (UTC)

Recent edit[edit]

I reverted edits that were made without new or additional sources here.

I have gone through and made terminology and other edits that don't require a source. After reviewing the differences more closely, there were changes made with a different source already used in the article and also a new source.

It would be good to find source for:

  • visits began in 1809 (cited source says 1810)
  • ...couple inherited the full 4,819 acres and eleven enslaved people when Wayles died in 1773.
  • Most frequently, he traveled with Burwell Colbert, his enslaved manservant who is the only individual to come to Poplar Forest on every visit Jefferson made. Israel and Gil Gillette, two enslaved men, drove the carriage and act as postilion when he traveled.

Here's the difference after the edits that I made diff.–CaroleHenson (talk) 21:54, 30 August 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hi Carole, I appreciate your feedback and understand your concerns. I'm Director of Education at Poplar Forest and can verify that the changes I made are accurate and necessary, including the pieces I removed. Interpretation changes constantly and I'm trying to ensure the more accurate information is presented. I will work on sources for these three suggestions asap.
