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]

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!

Ah good, it'd be a shame if you didn't. LOL
Haha of course, it's a musical, but you can't blame someone for attempting to educate others through song. ;)

You know, I was thinking about your works here. If you're into period pieces I think you might like the film, The Last of the Mohicans. I know that's random to say, but there's great moments in that film. You might like Steven Waddington as Major Duncan in it and I like the subtle exchanges between the characters Uncas and Alice. Just thought I might suggestion something to you.

It's one of those movies that's better the second time around, I'd say. You should watch it again, but I'm bias since I want you to watch it again. haha. Just because it's a good movie. Daniel Day Lewis rocks his long hair in that movie.

There's no movie, cause we all love a happy ending (even if it's bittersweet), but there's no happy ending for these people! Unless you end their story half way.

where is your movie about them :iconminimo-lahaplz:
the character is very alive and I think they are suffering not because of the family fate, but it is because health and woman rights is not getting much attention at their time (judging from the clothes, it is sometime around middle age, no?)

18th century. but really, if you read about the Jeffersons, there is so much tragedy from the beginning to the end, even for Thomas (how he lost his fathers, his sister, friends). i just... can't with them!
