    This Thomas Jefferson was the third President of the United States
    (1801-1809), Vice President under John Adams (1797-1801), Virginia
    Gov ernor (1779-1781), American revolutionary leader and political
    philospher, and author of the Declaration of Independence.

    He established the University of Virginia which opened in 1825, one of
    three accomplishments that he memoriali zed in the epitaph on his
    tombstone. The other two were his authorship of the Declaration of
    Independence and of the Statute of Virginia for Religious Free dom -
    the latter the most important of his achievements as a Virginia
    legislator.

    Thomas Jefferson was born on April 13, 1743 at Shadwell in Albemarlecou nty, Virginia. He had inherited a considerable landed estate from his father, and doubled it bya happy marriage on Jan. 1, 1772, to Martha Wayles Skelton. H e was elected to the House of Burgesseswhen he was 25.

    As a member of the Co ntinental Congress in 1776, Jefferson was chosentogether with John Adams, Benj amin Franklin, Robert Livingstone and Roger Sherman to draft theDeclaration of Independence. He wrote the declaration himself and was amended by Adams and Fr anklin.

    In 1784 Jefferson became, first, a commissioner to negotiate commerc ialtreaties, and then, Benjamin Franklin's successor as minister. Toward the e nd of his mission hereported the unfolding revolution in France. Eventually he was repelled by the excesses of the FrenchRevolution. He thoroughly disapprov ed France's imperialistic phase under Napoleon Bonaparte.Because of his absence in Europe,
    Jefferson had no direct part in the framing or ratification of the Constitution of the United States.

    The most notable achievement of Jefferson 's first term as President(1800) was the purchase in 1803 of Louisiana from Fr ance for 15 million dollars. (see Lewis and Clark).During his second term Jefferson encountered greater difficulties. One of the domestic problems was theBur r-Conspiracy, with the former vice president on trial for treason.

    Jefferso n was succeeded as president in 1809 by James Madison. During thelast 17 years of his life, Jefferson remained in Virginia. As the 'Sage of Monticello' he en gaged ina rich correspondence with John Adams and others. Jefferson's last gre at public service was thefounding of the University of Virginia in 1819. He di ed at Monticello on July 4, 1826 on the 50thanniversary of the Declaration of
    Independence.

    Thomas Jefferson MAY have also had an affair with a married woman whom he met while in France, Maria Causeway, although there is no evidence forit. She was Roman Catholic and so would not consider divorce. The pair had become completely inf atuated with each other and did many things together for about a month; they ha d very similar interests. It was an extremely rare thing for Jefferson to find someone of either sex that he could converse with on such a wide range of subj ects, which was no doubt the driving force behind the relationship. After she went back home he never seemed to show any interest in any other women.
