Thomas Jefferson had no known diseases as a small child, but at the age of 19 he suffered from "cluster headaches" (which of course was not known as such back then) every 7 - 8 years and generally brought on by stress. Violent headache for two days after behaving awkwardly in front of a girl he fancied (March 1764, age 20); Six week headache after his mother's death on March 31, 1776; Six weeks of headache soon after arriving, unhappy and homesick, as minister to France in 1785; While overburdened as Secretary of State, headaches recurred when he learned that a friend had become ill, but recovered (April 1790); About this time he had a second set of headaches, lasting from sunrise to sunset each day for 6 weeks.

Who were Thomas Jefferson's major collaborators in writing the Declaration of Independence?

As I know from reading a biography of John Adams by David McCullough, both Benjamin Franklin and John Adams worked with Jefferson to create the Declaration of Independence. Thomas Jefferson wrote majority of the document all on his own, but both Franklin and Adams helped to direct the document to apply to all types of religions and people. Jefferson originally had the claim, "we hold these truths to be true before God." Franklin, feeling that the line was a little too direct, changed the sentence to "we hold these truths to be self-evident."

What was the fear of the US Congress as defined by Thomas Jefferson?

Predictions in the field of politics are fraught with all types of hazards. Six weeks before the inauguration, Thomas Jefferson wrote to James Madison a letter that contained these words: " The tyranny of legislatures is the most formidable dread that will last for years." And he also predicted that in time there would be a tyranny of chief executive. For the most part the US Congress, except for rare situations, has been dominated by the US president. Ironically, it was Jefferson, as president that fought off attempts by congress to have a greater part in the Louisiana Purchase of 1803.
