Thomas Jefferson was the third president of the United States. He was the first president of the Democratic-Republican Party, and is known mostly for the Louisiana Purchase. His presidency signified the beginning of the end of the Federalist party, and the one party system dominated by the Democratic-Republicans. While he did many good things in his first term, his second wasn't that great. Jefferson was also the first president to up-hold George Washington's two-term tradition, as he retired after two terms.
Jefferson was born on April 13, 1743 in Shadwell, Virginia.
On the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence, Jefferson passed away a few hours before his former political enemy and friend, John Adams, would pass as well.
