Thomas Jefferson was the third President of the United States, the principal author of the Declaration of Independence, and one of the most influential Founding Fathers.
Major events during his presidency include the Louisiana Purchase (1803) and the Lewis and Clark Expedition (1804â€“1806), as well as escalating tensions with both Britain and France that led to war with Britain in 1812, after he left office.
Jefferson also achieved distinction as a horticulturalist, political philosopher, architect, archaeologist, paleontologist, inventor, and founder of the University of Virginia. To date, Jefferson is the only president to serve two full terms in office without vetoing a single bill of Congress.
