Jefferson the President: First Term, 1801-1805
Jefferson and His Time, Volume 4
The Jefferson and His Time Series: Book #4
Narrated by Anna Fields / 18 hours 46 minutes
The fourth volume in this Pulitzer Prize-winning six-volume work recounts Jefferson's eventful first presidential term. Though characterized by calmer seas than his second presidential voyage, Jefferson's first years in office find him confronting a nation deeply divided following the administrations of Washington and Adams, and many subsequent conflicts. He acquires the vast territory of Louisiana for the United States, challenges the growing power of the federal judiciary, continues to press his opposition to the Hamiltonian doctrine of an overriding central government, assumes the unchallenged leadership of his party, and is universally acknowledged as the preeminent American patron of science and general learning.
