I just finished a really interesting book, Saving Monticello by Mark Leepson, about the history of the house that Thomas Jefferson built at Monticello. This Lion Statue that used to sit on the front steps as you entered the house was auctioned off in the 1920s because it was not original to Thomas Jefferson’s day. Amazingly it is still in Charlottesville for all to see. Read more about the torrid history of this famous residence on my blog:
