He didn't get to Vegas

Posted in: Research, A Summary View, Thomas Jefferson

I've just laboriously sussed out the farthest points north, south, east and west Jefferson ever traveled and put it up on the Encyclopedia here.  I find this handy when people ask us if, say, TJ ever visited Las Vegas, to be able to say, "nope, sorry, the farthest west he ever got was..."  (Okay, no one has ever asked us if he visited Vegas, but it could happen.)

His travels north and east are pretty exotic (Birmingham, England and Milan, Italy, respectively) but his travels south and west are surprisingly, well, parochial: both are inside Virginia.
