July 4th Surprise in CVille

President George W. Bush will make an appearance at Monticello, Thomas Jefferson’s home, for Independence Day and a naturalization ceremony! Surprise!

Bush’s Monticello visit will be a fourth by a commander-in-chief to Mr. Jefferson’s house. President Franklin D. Roosevelt was the first in 1936, followed by Harry Truman in 1947, and Gerald Ford, who chose to celebrate America’s 1976 bicentennial at the home of the Declaration of Independence’s author on July 5.

Love him or hate him you have to give Bush some credit for his taste in architecture. Monticello is one of the most beautiful buildings in the world as it is a World Heritage Site.
