Jefferson Reading Be advised: When Jefferson assumed the presidency, he took many actions that seemed Federalist in nature. Review the handout you reviewed about the differences between the Federalists and the Republicans. At any rate, be careful in analyzing Jefferson. He might have acted more like a Federalist (to put more power in the federal government and the executive branch) but it might have been for the best interest of his “people.” Paragraph # Questions to ponder: short answers/bulleted NEAT and detailed please 1 Why were Virginia and Kentucky so set against a Federalist winning the election of 1800? Jefferson himself advocated for the South as he originated from Virginia Believed that the Republicans would give more state rights Federalists would strip them of their freedoms and liberties 2 So the Jeffersonians now called “Republicans” are called the Friend of the People, where the Federalists were called “The Father of the People.” Why do you think they called themselves as such? Federalist established laws and taxes to control the people (Sedition Act and federal tax) Republicans appealed to the popular demand (ex: postmaster firing all black people in a white dominated society) Jefferson won because of an unpopular law and unpopular federal taxes. What’s his next move then about these two issues? Wanted to push back authority of the Federalist, who became the political minority, and repeal the acts because of their violation to the Constitution 3 This paragraph mentions the first hypocritical (non-Jeffersonian—more Federalist) action of Jefferson. What was it? He violated the First Amendment by having restrictions on the Freedom of Press. Even though he prevented Congress from punishing people, he allowed states to put violators on trial. 4-5 Was this a smart move, in your opinion, for Jefferson to “don” the apparel of the common folk? I don’t think it is a good idea because while connecting with the commoners is good, it will make him seem less authoritative and more sluggish character and reluctantly listen to him. On top of that, it will make the other European countries look down on America for having a sloppy looking president.

    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.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
