Thomas Jefferson (April 13, 1743 – July 4, 1826) was the third president of the United States of America.

Background[edit | edit source]

Best known for drafting the American Declaration of Independence, Jefferson was a Congressman, wartime governor and diplomat before his presidency (1801-1809). His election over John Adams was known as the Revolution of 1800 as it ended the cycle of Federalist presidents and instated a new Democratic-Republican (Jefferson). Under his presidency, Jefferson oversaw the purchase of Louisiana in 1803 from the French and the Corps of Discovery's expedition across the American continent from 1804-1806.

He was the answer of a question at the National Archives' pop quiz terminals, and has his memorial as the site of Project Purity.
