The early days of America's history as a nation are full of very important people doing important things. Thomas Jefferson was the first Secretary of State, then became vice president under John Adams, and would then be elected president in 1800. He negotiated the Louisiana Purchase from France, which nearly doubled the size of the United States, and he strongly opposed the institution of slavery.
