Is it true that Thomas Jefferson shot a man?

Did Thomas Jefferson really shoot someone?


Answer by  rhistory (224)

Thomas Jefferson did shoot a man, Rodney Cox from North Carolina. Cox was found guilty of treason and since treason was the only punishable crime listed in the Constitution, Jefferson felt the importance of carrying out the conviction. Jefferson served as the only member of the firing squad.

The story goes that Thomas Jefferson shot a man on the White House lawn on the charge of treason. But, there is no evidence to prove this to be true.
