In the Company of Thomas Jefferson…  

One of America’s most influential, yet controversial, Founding Fathers.

A Piece of Living History

Americans visit museums, battlefields, and homes of historic figures, fascinated by a past that shapes our current habits, thoughts, and values. However, many people want a more life-like sense of our forefathers’ thoughts, language, and personalities.

Mr. Thomas Jefferson of Albemarle County, Virginia, would be honored to oblige your wishes through a “living history” characterization, as interpreted by Mr. Thomas Pitz. Mr. Pitz’s performances offer an entertaining glimpse into the comments and attitudes of one of America’s most influential, yet controversial, “Founding Fathers.”

Who is Mr. Jefferson?

Thomas Pitz, a.k.a. Mr. Jefferson, is a resident of beautiful Orange County, the heart of historical Virginia. With Virginia being the home to former presidents Jefferson, James Madison, James Monroe and Zachary Taylor, the Piedmont of Virginia serves as a natural spot for Mr. Pitz to call home.

Long an aficionado of Revolutionary Era history, Mr. Pitz has been performing as Mr. Jefferson since 1987. He considers it an honor and a privilege to bring one of America’s greatest historical figures back to life.
