Thomas Jefferson was a revolutionary statesman, lawyer, ambassador, farmer, third President of the United States, and also a highly influential amateur architect. He contributed to the introduction of a new concept of classicism to his country, based on Roman precedents. His Virginia State Capitol (completed 1796 with the assistance of Latrobe) set a pattern for official architecture in the USA.
