One of the main goals of the revamped Monticello.org is to provide opportunities for visitors and staff to engage in real conversations online in the same way we do in face-to-face encounters. These new features allow you to comment, tag, and favorite content on the website as you learn fascinating new things about Monticello, Thomas Jefferson, and the Foundation.

Isaac Granger Jefferson (1775-c.1850) was a tinsmith and blacksmith. His brief memoir, written down by an interviewer in 1847, provides important, fascinating information about Monticello and its people. Isaac was the third son of two very important members of the Monticello slave labor force.
The ICJS fellowship program for domestic and international scholars promotes research of Jefferson’s life and times and the community at Monticello. Since its founding, the ICJS has hosted nearly 300 domestic and international scholars from the U.S.
