        The Presidents - Biography: 3. Thomas Jefferson

        Jefferson wrote his own epitaph: "Here was buried Thomas Jefferson, Author of the Declaration of Independence, of the Statute of Virginia for religious freedom, and the Father of the University of Virginia." Yet he did not mention that he served as president. As president, he authorized the Louisiana Purchase and kept America free of the international entanglements of the Napoleonic Wars. Learn more about his presidency with this biography from American Experience: "The Presidents."
