Jefferson was concerned that without a subjugated labor force, agriculture on large plantations and dependence on saving labor would cripple. Jefferson’s assertions regarding slavery were riddled with contradictions both in deeds and words, especially when he defended its abolition in Northwest Territories and advocated for its expansion in Louisiana.

    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.
