      January 1, Guera25 This was enjoyable, but like its aged and declining subject, it felt exhausted, and there were certain chapters, particularly in the beginning that felt perfunctory if not peremptory. Forbid it, Almighty God! He drafted bills in three years, including laws to streamline the judicial system. Jefferson remains a staunch champion of individual liberty and intellectual freedom, and his Federalist foes remain antagonistic to his individualism. Also we Of the six volume series I enjoyed the first book and this final one the most.

      Much of this volume deals with his work with the University of Virginia, which did not get going until Some popular authors have written of Jefferson suggesting what he may have thought, or he may have done Brody, anyone? A second daughter of that name was born the following year, but she died at age three. Hamilton favored a capital close to the major commercial centers of the Northeast, while Washington, Jefferson, and other agrarians wanted it located to the south. Read the series and then ask yourself, "Is it more likely than not that Jefferson fathered Sally Hemming's children? The entail laws made it perpetual: the one who inherited the land could not sell it, but had to bequeath it to his oldest son.

      But I still wonder just what it was like to have been around the man. Also covered is his sale of his library to congress, thus laying the foundation of the Library of Congress after the War of This is a fitting final chapter in the life of one of America's greatest men. This volume is carefully done and really well-done.

Someone interviewed the descendants of Hemmings and guess what? Jefferson continued his pro-French stance; during the violence of the Reign of Terrorhe declined to disavow the revolution: "To back away from France would be to undermine the cause of republicanism in America.

After completing this series, I really do not understand why Malone had to go to such excessive detail about basically everything that Jefferson touched through his life.

I get that he was a caring grandfather, and that he tried to help his friends out, and that he supposedly treated his slaves well that is an oxymoron just writing that last part; I am glad that he did not abuse those unfortunate souls — but I remain disgusted that he felt no moral or ethical quandary about owning other human beings, or, if he did, it wasn't strong enough to free them.

What more could you ever need? Each book sequentially covers a part of Jefferson's robust life. He listened enthusiastically to the heated debate which followed. Fun it was because it was another work very Welle researched and easy to read.

Heavily footnoted, this series puts to shame all other works on this great American. There were ten children in the Jefferson home. He did view slavery as an obviously degrading, regrettable system; the third president also could sense the sectional divisions beginning to form over the issue.

January 1, Jon Laiche This book helped to direct and define my career as scholar, historian, teacher, techie, and modern pagan. Though this influence was slight, Malone never suggests for a moment that it was trivial or meaningless. Jefferson knew how to express himself, I will give him that.

What does a reasonable man expect them to say? These ideas, it is clear, shaped the liberal and enlightened foundation of a nation just now defining its character.

He was a stern man, though kind and just. It is possible that he gave his young friend, whose guest he was, a hint of what he intended to do. This would be an incredible summer reading series for someone in high school or college.

Or is it due to the many complicated shades of his subject? Most strenuous of the chapters were those relating to the War of and his initial efforts to create a common vision — and ongoing funding — for what is now the University of Virginia.

His first contribution to historical scholarship was a still authoritative biography of the American political commentator and educator Thomas Cooper Yale University Press, Jefferson had been suffering from migraines and he was tired of Hamilton in-fighting.
