John Wayles - John Wayles was father to Martha Wayles Skelton Jefferson, and one of  the most prominent landowners and speculators in the Commonwealth of Virginia. He  amassed holdings and debts in equal proportions, and passed this dubious inheritance  to Jefferson, his son-in-law. Wayles also fathered several children by his slave mistress,  Betty Hemings. Among their offspring was Sally Hemings, later styled as Jefferson's  own mistress.  James Wilkinson - James Wilkinson, a hero of the Revolutionary War, served as deputy  governor of the Louisiana Territory under the command of William Claiborne. He played  a significant role in Aaron Burr's secessionist plot, but was cleared of wrongdoing after  revealing the scheme to Jefferson. He later served an unremarkable tenure in the War  of 1812.

    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.
