Thomas Jefferson (2678 words)
Jefferson was unable to accomplish much diplomatically during these years, not in the least because France was simmering with its own revolutionary and class conflict in the wake of America's triumph over Britain.
Jefferson was one of many Southerners who criticized the Missouri Compromise.which admitted Missouri as a slave state and Maine as a free state but ruled out slavery in the rest of the Louisiana Purchase north of latitude 36°30.as an undemocratic abuse of power by the federal government.
Jefferson viewed himself and his slaves as victims of mankind's failure to rid itself of this terrible institution, and he contented himself with the idea that he would be a benevolent master to those he owned, until the 'peculiar institution' met with its rightful end.
