The Presidency

Thomas was the third president of the United States of America. In 1804-1806 Thomas sent Lewis & Clark to find a route to the Pacific Ocean. Jefferson also lowered taxes which might have been why he was liked a lot.

After Presidency and Opinion

Thomas died of sickness on July 4, 1826 in Monticello, Virginia. I think Thomas Jefferson was the best president in history because he really cared about the US. He sent out Lewis and Clark on an expedition to find more land so that we could be happier and have more space.
