Ch.7 Worksheet 1. Thomas Jefferson, on paper one of the richest men in Virginia, owner of thousands of acres of land and 200 slaves, was plagued by his creditors. 2. He opposed federal expenditures because they could lead to indentures, but his parsimony sometimes left the nation vulnerable to foreigners, including highhanded European rulers and pirates in northern Africa. 3. The constitution did not distinguish between president and vice president; it provided only that each elector in the electoral college vote for two candidates. 4. He would have withdrawn, since the voters had clearly intended him for the second spot. 5. The Federalists ignored Hamilton and continued to support Burr. 6. Hamilton never owned slaves. 7. He worried that an indebted nation could become enslaved to its creditors. He feared banks because they too, deprived debtors of true liberty, he believed all government restricted the freedom of the individual. He wanted the United States to remain a society of small independent farmers. 8. Hamilton wanted to commercialize and centralize the country, embracing public debt so as to initiate public projects and promote investment. 9. For it would mean that financial speculators and creditors would acquire economic power. 10. That he fathered one or more children by Sally Hemings, one of his slaves. 11. 12. Entangling alliances, he promised to pay off the national debt, preserve the governments credit, and stimulate both agriculture and its handmaid commerce.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
