Description

The fifth volume of the Jefferson series completes the story of his presidency-carrying him through his troubled second term, but also to the end of an official career that spanned some forty years. Here is a vibrant account of Jefferson's disparate activities-sponsoring the Lewis and Clark Expedition, concluding the naval "war" with the Barbary pirates, engaging in a political duel with Chief Justice Marshall over the trial of Aaron Burr, attempting to impose an embargo on exports in reaction to the impressment of American seamen by foreign powers, and, finally, retiring to his beloved haven at Monticello.
