  9. 9. The most admired person in American history is Thomas Jefferson. At the age of nine, Jefferson studied Latin, Greek, and French. I think it isastonishing to learn three languages at the age of nine! He entered college at the age of sixteen. Aftergraduating from college, Jefferson studied to become a lawyer. He also became an architect, and he designed his own home, Monticello. It is the most amazing home you will ever see. Jefferson invented many things for his house that other houses of that time did not have. For example, Monticello had a dumbwaiter, a small elevator to move food from one floor to another. He also invented the swivel chair. In my opinion, he is the smartest man who ever lived.
