Experience a pivotal moment in American history as you witness a conversation between Thomas Jefferson and his good friend, fellow revolutionary and political rival, John Adams. The two met at the 1775 Continental Congress in Philadelphia and became friends while working on the draft of the Declaration of Independence. Their rich friendship continued—despite a seven-year hiatus after a falling out over politics in 1801—until July 4,1826, when Jefferson and Adams died within hours of each other.
