Speaking of Politicians Who Died on July 4th

John Adams and Thomas Jefferson died within hours of each other on the 50th anniversary of the Declaration. Edward J. Larson recounts the bitterness of the 1800 campaign in a WaPo op-ed. He doesn’t get into how Adams and Jefferson later reconciled, a story told, albeit greatly simplified, in the last episode of the fabulous HBO miniseries John Adams. After watching the miniseries I picked up The Adams-Jefferson Letters, a volume that I highly recommend for history buffs.
