Thomas Jefferson enjoyed reading books, and doing a variety of things an average kid would do. Play on playgrounds ,explore etc. One thing we know is that TJ (Thomas Jefferson) enjoyed rummaging through vineyards, later on in life he enjoyed tasting and drinking wine.
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.

No nor slaves. Women didn't have rights in Jefferson's time. They couldn't own land, have a bank account, go to college, and vote. It won't be until the 1920's that women will get the right to vote and in many cases women won't be able to many jobs until recently. A good example of this is women in …the military. The first woman figher pilot was in the last 5 years or so. ( Full Answer )

What did Thomas Jefferson mean when he wrote all differences of opinion are not necessarily differences of principle?
"I'm a patriot. I support the invasion of Iraq. Therefore people against the invasion of Iraq aren't patriots." Two patriots both equally intent on acting in the best interest of their peoples and country disagree with each other as to how to go about that. The difference in opinion doesn't automat…ically equate to one not really being a patriot. Jefferson and Madison founded the Democratic-Republican Party, which is still on operation today for all it appears to have split in two, and their intent was to bridge the differences between the original federalists and anti-federalists. Because the differences in their opinions weren't differences in principle anymore before than after the founding of the US. ( Full Answer )

The exact meaning of this phrase has been debated quite extensively. The meaning and interpretation of such a simple statement has changed over time. One meaning is the God created all human beings and gave them all the same status at birth. Another meaning is that all human beings were grante…d free will, intelligence, and the same basic needs. Some view the statement in a socialist sense - that all people ought to be completely equal at all times. Everything in society should be fair. No one should inherit property, for example, because that would be unequal. No one's rich dad should send them to an expensive college while another has to start work at age 18. This idea is in no way related to Jefferson's meaning. Given that the statement is a key concept in the Declaration of Independence, most likely Jefferson was attacking the hereditary power of the King of England. He is saying that a king and a commoner are created equal. Many people have pointed out that today "all men" is taken to mean "all people". At the time it was written, it really meant all men ... all males. Women would continue to have fewer rights than men in the new American society. But did it really mean "all men?" There was no question that at the time that Blacks and Native Americans were treated as lesser humans. They were not to be treated as equal in any sense of the term. ( Full Answer )

"Jefferson tried his best, as an enlightened, thoughtful individual might. But the structure of American society, the power of the cotton plantation, the slave trade, the politics of unity between northern and southern elites, and the long culture of race prejudice in the colonies, as well as his ow…n weaknesses-that combination of practical need and ideological fixation-kept Jefferson a slaveowner throughout his life." written by Howard Zinn in A People's History of The United States.
