Perhaps more than einv other Vmerican, Jefferson influenced those fundamental philosophies which arc inescapable from the American traditions ol democrac) and freedom. . . . Going back to Washington on the bus, I browsed through some of mv accumulated literature. Men' Claude G. Bowers describes Jefferson as "artist, musician, architect, landscape gardener, lover ol painting eiml sculpture, and a graceful Writer." Jefferson designed Monticello, 'he- capito] al Richmond, lhe I niversit) uf Virginia buildings. As a farmer, he introduced crop rotation emd terraced binning lo this country.

Jefferson's view was thai the Federalists were determined upon undermining American democracy in favoi nt rule by the elite.
