No. Jefferson did not write the Constitution or the Bill of Rights.He was in France during the Constitutional Convention and duringthe congressional debate over the Bill of Rights.
He was strongly against the war, as he was not exactly friends with John Adams, a Federalist, very strongly pro-navy because he was a merchant with a fleet of ships. As he became president, he was the brainchild of the Gunboat Act after the Barbary Wars in which gunboats were needed. Gunboats are ti…ny ships of ten men who hurl huge mortars into fortified cities. Anyways, the gunboats were a great idea, but never were successful in the War Of 1812. Thus they were a big loss for the American government. Lots of money were spent. Anyways, when Adams and Jefferson became older and saw the navy's success in the War Of 1812, he warmed up to the navy. Hope this helps. (MORE)

The snuff used in Thomas Jefferson's day isn't what we call snuff today. Back then, snuff consisted of tobacco ground so fine it was virtually powder. The user would then take a small pinch of the tobacco and snort it.
Thomas Jefferson felt that if the U.S was more democratic it would be more succesful.. Though this never happened - _ -
Yes on both counts. For a simple answer, Alexander Hamilton was our first Secretary of the Treasury, and he was the one that set up the structure and function of that portion of our government such as the cabinet and the Mint, which are still both essential in government. As for Thomas Jefferson, he… wrote the Declaration of Independence which is of huge importance today, but he also established the Survey of the Coast, which eventually led to the formation of NOAA, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.. Hope that helps :D (MORE)
Actually he didn't. The belief that the US was founded as a Christian nation is a fallacy and ,in fact,it never was Christian except that most people were Christian. There is not one word in the constitution about Christianity nor is it mentioned in the Declaration . The declaration refers only to "…nature's God". The founding fathers expressed doubts about Christianity and studied other beliefs. Jefferson believed in God and considered himself a Christian but he seemed to reject the divinity of Christ. He even went to the extent to rewrite the bible. Ethan Allen derided Christian revelations as deceptive or "spurious"and Thomas Paine condemned the "monstrous belief" that God had ever spoken to man. George Washington never mentioned Christ in any of his writings and he was a deist. It wasn't until Lincoln that God was used in a presidential speech. (MORE)

President Jefferson nominated three Associate Justices to the Court. The first, William Johnson , was nominated in 1804 and served until 1834. He was known to be independent minded and represented the ideals of the Democratic-Republican party. Jefferson nominated Henry Brockholst Livingston …in 1807. Livingston served until his death in 1823, but disappointed the Jeffersonians by adopting John Marshall's style of jurisprudence, and voting with Marshall on most issues. Congress passed "An Act establishing Circuit Courts, and abridging the jurisdiction of the district courts in the districts of Kentucky, Tennessee, and Ohio" in February 1807, adding the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals and a seventh seat to the Supreme Court, which allowed Jefferson to nominate a third member of his party to the Federalist-leaning judiciary. Unfortunately, Thomas Todd , who served from 1807 until 1826, turned out to be the biggest disappointment of all, as he consistently voted with Marshall, and wrote only eleven opinions during his 19-year career. Historians consider Todd the least important justice in the history of the Court. Because two of Jefferson's three nominees fell in step with the strong-willed John Marshall, Jefferson had very little impact on the direction of the Supreme Court. (MORE)
The Louisiana Territory is the land that Jefferson arranged to buy from France in 1803. The territory consisted of 828,800 square miles. The U.S. paid 60 million francs ($11,250,000) plus cancellation of debts worth 18 million francs ($3,750,000), a total cost of $15,000,000 for this land
Even though the Louisiana Purchase which occurred under Jefferson causes a great expansion of the US, I do not think Jefferson particularly pushed for the expansion. His main goal was to secure the vital river route to the Gulf and the Atlantic via the Mississippi.
He was a male who owned many slaves and had sexual intercourse with a few, as biological tests have shown.
Thomas Jefferson, the 3rd president, is depicted on the US $2 bill. The reverse of the current bill carries a slightly-modified interpretation of Trumbull's painting, The Signing of the Declaration of Independence. Older $2 bills carried a picture of Jefferson's house Monticello.
Thomas Jefferson was the most unlikely father of the Americanprofessional army. He was fearful of creating a standing army thatmight threaten the civil government, but the needs of the countrydemanded a well trained military officer corps. There was a needfor American engineers for the military. We …were depending onforeign engineers at the time. West Point would be our firstengineering school. Also Jefferson was losing his battle to avoid anational military; he favored State organized militia. After theNaval War on the Barbary pirates, and seeing the potential of warwith Britain in Canada, Jefferson saw that a national, professionalmilitary was unavoidable and he felt that if there was going to bea permanent military officer corps that it must be trained not as aEuropean style elite class outside and separate from thegovernment, but as an instrument of the republic, in a sense as a"people's army". The requirement that cadets must be approved intothe corps by their congressman is an example of Jefferson'smeasures to make sure the military was always answerable to thecivil government. West Point, New York is the location of the US Military Academy. (MORE)

Thomas Jefferson never used the acronym Potus. (Acronyms containing more than four letters tend to only capitalize the first letter, or none at all, c.f. scuba: s(elf) c(ontained) u(nderwater) b(reathing) a(pparatus). Because this is an official title, it generally receives initial letter capitaliza…tion.) The acronym seems to be a linguistic analogy of Scotus. Walter Phillips published the Phillips Code in 1879 and included Scotus as an acronym commonly used for the "Supreme Court of the United States". E.E. Bruckner revised the Phillips Code in 1925 and included Potus. Usage of the term has waxed and waned over time. (MORE)
