He wrote the first draft of the Declaration of Independence, he was the first secretary of state, he was the third president of the United States of America, and he purchased the Louisiana Territory (the Louisiana Purchase). He also created the Embargo Act which stopped Americans from trading with any foreign countries, but this hurt America's economy. He was also America's second vice-president, co-founder of the Democratic-Republican Party and initiator of the Lewis and Clark expedition. Furthermore, he was the founder of the University of Virginia and author of the Statute of Religious Freedom of Virginia.
