Thomas Jefferson: author, lawyer, statesman, architect, farmer...
… not to mention he can play the violin!
Jefferson, although taking a back seat to John Adams, is still an important
figure in the movie. This is shown especially in the scene where Martha Jefferson, his wife, shows up on his doorstep. According
to the movie, they haven't been together in six months (I burn, Mr. A) and Jefferson is getting lonely (like Adams) and misses his wife.
When they are finally together, not even Franklin can pull
them apart. "... and Dr. Franklin... inventor of the stove! Jefferson, kindly present
me to your wife!" - Adams, 1776
