These ideas were reinforced by Jefferson in his book, “Notes on the State of Virginia”; also added that slaves couldn’t be Americans because of natural incapacity and bitter experiences as slaves, which made them disloyal to the nation Believed heredity and environment, race and intelligence were connected (Indians were equal to whites in intelligence, but blacks were not) A free African American named Benjamin Banneker wrote an astronomical almanac, but Jefferson rejected it Jefferson also believed that Indians and whites would eventually live together in peace, but also said that blacks could never coexist with them (could only gain natural rights from Declaration of Independence in Africa or the Carribean, but not in the US) Jefferson tried not to sell his slaves because of debt, and his will only included the freedom of 5 of his slaves Principles Of Freedom As apprenticeship and indentured servitude declined, the justification of the use of slavery became more prominent (gave more freedoms to whites but not blacks) Became obvious that the principles of American freedom and its liberties only applied to whites.

    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.
