He introduced better machinery, invented a plow, and brought many kinds of trees and plants from different countries to find if they would grow in the United States. He was not to be allowed to remain on his plantations. Virginia and the nation had need of him.
He served in the Virginia legislature, in the Continental Congress, where he wrote the Declaration of Independence, and as governor of Virginia. After the Revolution he served in Congress, and from to represented the country in France. After his return he was appointed Secretary of State by President Washington, but resigned in He was a candidate for president when Washington refused to accept a third term, but John Adams, of Massachusetts, was elected.
It was the law then that the man who received next to the highest vote should become vice-president, and so Jefferson held that office for four years. In he became president, and served two terms. He might have been elected again, but, like Washington, refused the honor…. For the seventeen years following his retirement from office Jefferson lived at his home, Monticello, which became a resort for the great and noble minds in the country.
To his great grief, he was forced to sell his library, which he had been collecting for over fifty years. The money thus obtained was but a temporary relief.
