Martha with little Patsy and Polly by nami64 Martha with little Patsy and Polly by nami64
and now for something completely different…

Martha with little Patsy and Polly.

i just have a lot of feels about this entire family, and particularly about these women.
Martha buried 4 of her children and died later of childbirth (like her own mother) at 33 ; Polly died the same way at 25 and Patsy married an abusive husband, said to suffer from alcoholism and mental instability.

in other words, if you want to have an happy and long life, don’t be part of the Jefferson family! (SERIOUSLY WHERE IS MY MOVIE ABOUT THEM?!!)

once again, i prefer the lineart: [link]

I agree with you about the movie part!!!!!!!! I want the write the whole thing, script, cast, and all, and fly to Hollywood, find Steven Spielburg, slap him in the face, and give him all my I'm so weird...

Unfortunately there is no movie specifically about the Jeffersons, however, you MIGHT enjoy watching 1776. It's a musical about our colonial period, with John Adams, Ben Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, everyone, in the struggle of winning their independence.

There is a scene where Thomas is struggling in writing the Declaration, so instead he begins playing his violin. To avert his depression, Ben and John ask Martha to come see him. (There is also a lot of John and Abigail c: ) Not an entire movie but they have a whole musical number. LOL

I'm not sure if you can find it online, but I do know you can order it, considering I did some years ago because I wanted it on a DVD.

Sorry I am such a quiet watcher, I do love every thing you make about them. History is a very big part of my life, alas, I am only related to Benedict Arnold lmao. Keep up the wonderful work, I look forward to seeing more!
