Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826) was a Virginia planter, politician,and Founding Father of the US. He was the primary author of theDeclaration of Independence in 1776, and the fir…st US ambassador toFrance. He was later elected the 3rd President of the US. He hadsix children with his wife Martha Skelton Jefferson and possiblyfathered one or more of the six children of the slave Betty Hemings(who was 3/4 white and his wife's half-sister).
Yes. He was called Tom. Tommy. Mr. Jefferson. Jefferson. And as people today refer him as Tom J.
Thomas Jefferson's presidency initiated the quarter-century rule of the "Virginia Dynasty" (1801-1825), including the presidencies of loyal Jeffersonians James Madison (18…09-1817) and James Monroe (1817-1825). As the center of political gravity shifted southward with the Republican ascendancy, the party gained new strength to the north, progressively marginalizing Federalists as an effective national opposition party. But the founders' fantasy of faction-free politics was not to be fulfilled. Emerging splits among Republicans themselves pitted orthodox, strict constructionist "Old Republicans" against "National Republicans" who favored a more positive and activist (according to critics, Hamiltonian) conception of federal power. Quarrels among Jeffersonian-Republicans foreshadowed the division between Jacksonian Democrats, self-proclaimed legatees of Jeffersonian orthodoxy, and Whigs who promoted a neo-Federalist, National Republican policy agenda while warning against "King Andrew's" dangerous consolidation of authority.
