Thomas Jefferson By Mia Hotchkiss
Thomas Jefferson is on of Americas Founding Fathers he was born on April 13, 1743 He died on July 4, 1826 at age 83. I predict future happiness for Americans, if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them. He was trying to keep Americas hopes up so that they know if they fight as hard as they can then they will get the freedom.
Thomas Jefferson was a silent person and when he talked the first time to congress it was long after he joined but he insulted on religion in two sentences for which they gave them reprehension. As a young lawyer they respected him for his knowledge of the law, but he was not known as an outstanding orator.
Thomas Jefferson hade good ethics because he helped America break away from the British. America wanted to break away from the British because after being left alone for about 100 years they went over the colonist government and started to tax them. At age 33, he?was?one of the youngest delegates to the Second Continental Congress beginning in 1775 at the outbreak of the?American Revolutionary War.
Thomas Jefferson was a great president because he was against the Alien and Sedition Acts?granted the President enormous powers showing that the government had become a tyranny which made the government angry and offended. The?acts?were denounced Democratic-Republicans and ultimately helped them to victory in the 1800 election, when?Thomas` Jefferson defeated the incumbent,?President?Adams.
Thomas Jefferson managed his time by taking it one step at a tome when he wrote the declaration of independence he sat down and locked his self in the room to wright it. When he was not sure about the Alien and Sedition Act, he took the time and research it and he is a smart wise person that’s why they picked him to wright the declaration.
Thomas Jefferson wasn’t a good public speaker, so he would wright then instead of saying them. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed, by their Creator, with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness . That was a speech he wrote it means treat others how you want to be treated that is how I see it they are human to.
Thomas had some thing that now we shame him for such as he hade slaves but back then a lot of people did. He didn’t stay with the British to be with his son. He put in the draft that all men are created equal. They changed that because the slaves were getting exited about it. Which now we think and know is wrong but back then they didn’t know it was for them it was just the triangle trade.
The con conclusion is Thomas Jefferson wasn’t the worst or best person he used his time wisely he lived a good long meaning full life. If it wasn’t for Thomas Jefferson a lot of things including America would be different so thank you Thomas Jefferson.
