Transcript of Thomas Jefferson

His Political Party
Thomas Jefferson's political party was the Democratic-Republican Party. He opposed a strong centralized government and upheld the rights of states.
His Vice President
Thomas Jefferson's vice presidents were Aaron Burr from 1800 to 1804, and George Clinton from 1805 to 1809. Both vice presidents only served a single term with him.
Embargo Act
k E
In 1804, Thomas Jefferson gave the power to Meriwether Lewis and William Clark to explore the western part of the US.
By 1806, they returned with detailed information about Native Americans, geography, and animals. (2 years!)
The whole point of this trip was to find a water route across the continent.
By the end of that journey we had also made good relations with the Natives!
Election of 1800
Louisiana Purchase
The Louisiana Purchase was a land deal between the United States and France, in which the U.S. acquired approximately 827,000 square miles of land west of the Mississippi.This was where the U.S. government bought from France the Louisiana Territory, in 1803, for $15 million dollars. It expands from the U.S. to California. President Thomas Jefferson predicted that France was in debt so they would be willing to sell after the French and Indian War this is why he wrote a prediction in a letter in April 1802 to Pierre du Pont amid reports that Spain would give back to France the vast territory of Louisiana. As the United States had expanded west, navigation of the Mississippi River and access to the port of New Orleans had become very important to American commerce, so this transfer of authority was cause for concern.

The neutrality of the United States was tested during the Napoleonic wars. Britain and France kept harassing American ships by taking American goods and men, in order to weaken each others economy. This made the United States lose money. Thomas Jefferson signed the Embargo Act to stoptrade with other countries. The goal was to get Britain and France, who were fighting each other at the time, to stop restricting American trade. They sent all of American ships to their ports , and they restricted trade with any country. The Act backfired,and the American people suffered, and the daring attempt to use economic pressure in a world at war was not successful. The United States lost millions of dollars. The Act ended in 1809.
Election of 1800
Jefferson was going against John Adams to be president. Jefferson became the third president of the USA. Thomas Jefferson has many nicknames which we may use in the following slides... "Sage of Monticello", "Apostle of the Constitution", and"Long Tom." The election could have ended in a civil war but thankfully it didn't even though it was a close tally. Thomas Jefferson won 73 to 65.

Election of 1800
Jefferson was going against John Adams to be president. Jefferson became the third president of the USA. Thomas ________ has many nicknames such as... "Sage of Monticello", "Apostle __ the Constitution", and"Long Tom." The election could have ended in a civil ___ but thankfully it didn't even though it was a _____ tally.
Outgoing President John Adams had issued William Marbury a commission as justice of the peace, but the Secretary of State, James Madison, refused to deliver it. Marbury then sued to obtain it. With his decision in Marbury v. Madison, Chief Justice John Marshall established the principle of judicial review, to limit Congressional power by declaring legislation unconstitutional.
Thomas Jefferson turned on John Adams to become president. He didn't like the way Adams ran things.
John Adams was the only
president to serve only one single term. This is where it all started.
John Adams (the federalist)

wanted wealthy people to rule
strong federal government
Loose interpretation of the Constitution
British alliance
Thomas Jefferson (the democratic-republican)
wanted a government ruled by the people
strong state government
strict interpretation of Constitution
French alliance
That same purchase is now worth around 15 times what it was worth back then.
Thomas Jefferson's Secretary of State
James Madison was appointed Secretary of State by Thomas in March
As President Jefferson's Secretary of State, Madison protested to fighting France and Britain that their seizure of American ships was contrary to international law. "The protests, John Randolph acidly commented, had the effect of "a shilling pamphlet hurled against eight hundred ships of war." said http://www.whitehouse.gov/about/presidents/jamesmadison
This was the first time the vice president and president were in two different parties.
