historians are not quite sure why Jefferson didn't set his slaves free. he inherited slaves from various people including his father, but Jefferson knew that slavery was wrong. so your question is a good one... why did he continue to own slaves? some people have suggested that thomas Jefferson tho…ught that setting his slaves free would only make them subject to re-enslavement by someone else. The next person who owned them might end up being very harsh to them. So why did he relly keep them though? No one really knows for sure. > I would say rather, that Jefferson was a man of his time, and as such was a white supremacist. Jefferson speaks extensively on his feelings (and they are just that, and in no way scholarly or scientific) about the "races" or "species" of man in his "Notes on The State of Virginia"(1781). He states that, "...never yet could I find that a black had uttered a thought above the level of plain narration..."(266) He goes on to bash and attempt to discredit Black artists of the time Ignatius Sancho and Phyllis Wheately. He goes on to make asinine comparisons between American Slavery and Ancient Roman Slavery, and the intellectual and artistic development of Free whites and enslaved Blacks before eventually concluding, "...as a suspicion only, that the blacks, whether originally a distinct race, or made distinct by time and circumstances, are inferior to the whites in endowments both of body and mind" (270). And why would he keep his inherited slaves? Well, he goes on to say that, "This unfortunate difference of colour, and perhaps of faculty, is a powerful obstacle to the emancipation of these people" (270). And all of this was written several years before Jefferson impregnated his slave girl Sally Hemings (about 16 at the time). Inherited from Jefferson's wife Martha , Sally and Martha are said to have been half-sisters (i.e. Martha's dad enjoyed sex with his slaves as well). Their children, remained his slaves into adulthood as did Sally who wasn't freed until after Jefferson's death in 1826. So Thomas Jefferson is a founding father, and known as a great thinker and proponent of liberty, however, a closer look at his life reveals that he was FAR from perfect, and like many white Americans (and Europeans) of his time did not believe that non-whites were equal to whites.

Thomas Jefferson's presidency initiated the quarter-century rule ofthe "Virginia Dynasty" (1801-1825), including the presidencies ofloyal Jeffersonians James Madison (1809-1817) and James Monroe(1817-1825). As the center of political gravity shifted southwardwith the Republican ascendancy, the party… gained new strength tothe north, progressively marginalizing Federalists as an effectivenational opposition party. But the founders' fantasy offaction-free politics was not to be fulfilled. Emerging splitsamong Republicans themselves pitted orthodox, strictconstructionist "Old Republicans" against "National Republicans"who favored a more positive and activist (according to critics,Hamiltonian) conception of federal power. Quarrels amongJeffersonian-Republicans foreshadowed the division betweenJacksonian Democrats, self-proclaimed legatees of Jeffersonianorthodoxy, and Whigs who promoted a neo-Federalist, NationalRepublican policy agenda while warning against "King Andrew's"dangerous consolidation of authority.

What does this quote from Thomas Jefferson The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants It is a natural manure mean?
It is a partial quote, actually. It is taken from a letter Jefferson wrote to William Smith in 1787 in reference to an uprising in Massachusetts after the American Revolution. A more full quote: "Yet where does this anarchy exist? Where did it ever exist, except in the single instance of Massachu…setts? And can history produce an instance of a rebellion so honourably conducted? I say nothing of it's motives. They were founded in ignorance, not wickedness. God forbid we should ever be twenty years without such a rebellion. The people cannot be all, and always, well informed. The part which is wrong will be discontented, in proportion to the importance of the facts they misconceive. If they remain quiet under such misconceptions, it is lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty. And what country can preserve its liberties, if it's rulers are not warned from time to time, that this people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to the facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is its natural manure." . Jefferson is referring, specifically, to the Shays' Rebellion. If you look at the context of the quote, it appears that Jefferson actually believed the men who took arms were essentially wrong about the facts, but he still considered them patriotic for making their voices heard. Jefferson felt it was important that the government be kept in check, even if those keeping them in check were not necessarily in the right. It wasn't being in the "right" that kept the people free, but rather the fact that they had a voice and used it. The specific meaning to the last part of the quote, the piece most often quoted, isn't an incitement to violence against the state (which it has unfortunately been sometimes misconstrued to be), but rather seems an acceptance of some degree of violence as a necessary element to keeping freedom safe... a "necessary evil", if you will. What is often missed is that Jefferson immediately preceded the most quoted part of the letter with his solution for the state: "to set them right as to the facts, pardon and pacify them." (MORE)
