866 Steinbach Nutcracker Thomas Jefferson
The visitor to Washington canít help
but notice the green-tinted dome of the Thomas Jefferson Memorial which
honors the 3rd president of the United States (1801 1809). It is a
huge, larger than life-size statue cast in bronze. You can also see
Thomas Jefferson on numerous pictures in the many government buildings.
With his ever-present red vest and his Irish red hair, he is easy to
pick out. You can still visit his home in Monticello, Virginia, which is
still in its original fully furnished state.
Jefferson is considered to be the most
decisive author of the American Declaration of Independence of July 4th,
1776, as well as one of its original signers. He believed in a strict
separation of church and state and was of the opinion that social
privileges were to be done away with. His political thought could be
characterized as agrarian- middle class and was strongly influenced by
his years serving as the ambassador to France from 1785 to 1789. With
great skill, he organized an opposition party against the newly formed
Federalist party of his time. In so doing, he became the founder of
todayís Democratic party. In the year 1800 Jefferson won the election.
As president he thought to achieve harmony in internal matters and
neutrality, albeit with limited success, in external matters.
There is no disputing the fact however,
that Thomas Jefferson was a statesman with great foresight.
