Thomas Jefferson

The Hero of US Presidents

Why is he the bomb?

Thomas Jefferson did countless things for our country including, he was the author of the Declaration of Independence, he bought Louisiana Territory and, banned slave importation.

The Declaration of Independence was a huge step for our country. It was politically perfect for the occasion. Thomas Jefferson outdid himself.

The Louisiana Purchase doubled the size of the United States. Which enabled the US to increase its population and industry. Plus, we got it for a really good deal.

Slaves were used a LOT on plantations in the south. Thomas Jefferson banned slave importation in the US which was almost like a step into the future when Abraham Lincoln would become president. Slaves deserved rights too, and I think Thomas Jefferson was starting to see this during his presidency.
