Jefferson wrote in his biography that this was his most meaningful impact on his society. Thomas Jefferson’s accomplishments have shaped and moved the American nation into something amazing and great by purchasing the Louisiana Territory, by being friendly and popular with the people, and writing the Declaration of Independence. Purchasing the Louisiana Territory not only gained land the the U.S.A. but also established relationships with the natives that called the Territory home.
Chad Miller, Ph.D from southern Mississippi, pointed out that 61 percent of students fail to earn a degree from a community college in 6 years. If we apply the 61 percent of dropouts to the 80 billion dollars invested, then that would mean 48 billion would go down the drain. This is such a complicated matter meriting lots of investigation. Imagine what that 48 billion dollars could go to rather than being wasted. The United States cannot afford losing billions of dollars.
During his presidency, he reduced the debt by $23 million. Many years before Jefferson became president, the Barbary states had sent pirates to attack and capture European and American ships, cargo, and sailors. They would then hold the crews for ransom and demanded large sums of money for safe passage. The US and European countries would routinely give into these demands because they knew it would cost less than war. Jefferson had opposed this from the beginning, so when he was president, he made it all change.
America would pay them 25 million dollars for it, Mexico refused, and America placed troops at the border, and Mexico shot first. During the war, Americans came up with the idea that all the new land they would gain from Mexico would be free states the idea was called the Wilmot Proviso it was created in 1846 on August 8.

President Jackson’s decision to create a new compromised tariff was beneficial to not only South Carolina, but the whole country because they could focus on more important issues, like slavery. President Lincoln’s decision to institute a draft so that he could get more power on the side of the Union, as well as the Emancipation Proclamation, which ensured that other nations like Britain and France didn’t help on the Confederate side to win the Civil War. These issues still stick with us today, for example the idea of states ’ rights, which applied to the Nullification Crisis when South Carolina nullified the tariffs, can still be found in controversial decisions about different drugs, as well as firearms. Racism and discrimination still occasionally happen to African-Americans, which carries along the idea of how the United States has always had conflicting views about slavery and African-American rights. Presidents of the United States of America will continue to make decisions to ease the tensions in the country on controversial issues, and previous decisions will come up again, like history always
He went back to Puerto Rico and died there. The Spanish gained a large amount of gold from the Americas. One shipment alone was about $15 million, and they would send a shipment a week back to Spain.

We traveled from St. Louis, up the MIssouri River, cross the Rocky Mountains, travel the Columbia River to the Pacific Ocean by Keelboat, horses, and canoes in two and a half years.
The first half of the eyewitness was before Thomas Jefferson becoming our third president and during his presidency. It talks about how Jefferson won the election between him and Aaron Burr including how he became famous or popular for his re-election. The reason on why he was won against Burr was because Burr was expecting Alexander Hamilton to choose him for the high office because he was a political enemy of Jefferson.

Some people, back in those times, were only paid five hundred dollars a year. How could the government then expect them to just pay 60% of what they make in a whole year.

However, Torres couldn’t fund the project forever by himself and began requesting assistance from other members of the community. Torres received publicity for his efforts and eventually the program was continued through an increase in sales taxes. A promise was made to residents of the French Quarter that the program named the “French Quarter Task Force” would run another five years.
