After walking the grounds,seeing his garden,monument and seeing below the house. Go see it!
Ash Lawn Highland, James Monroe's house, less than two miles from Jefferson's. This house is simple compared to Monticello,but very nice. Monroe bought 1,000 acres of land. A few interesting facts about Monroe...he fought in the Revolutionary War with Washington,got shot with a musket, the musket ball could not be removed,so Monroe went to Study Law at William and Mary with Jefferson... Then became our fifth President.Can you imagine?? What great men these were!
