Thomas Jefferson (April 13, 1743 July 4, 1826)[1] was the third President of the United States (18011809) and the principal author of the Declaration of Independence (1776). An influential Founding Father, Jefferson envisioned America as a great "Empire of Liberty" that would promote republicanism.[2]
Jefferson served as the wartime Governor of Virginia (17791781), barely escaping capture by the British in 1781. [3] Many people were not pleased with his tenure and in the next election he did not win office again in Virginia. [4] From mid-1784[5] through late 1789[6] Jefferson lived outside the United States. He served in Paris initially as a commissioner to help negotiate commercial treaties. In May 1785 he succeeded Benjamin Franklin as the U.S. Minister to France.[7]
