Book Description

Jefferson in 1796 was brought forward by his friends as a candidate for
President, but Mr. Adams, receiving the highest number of votes, was
elected President, and Jefferson became Vice-President for four years
from March 4, 1797. In 1800, he was again voted for by his party for
President. He and Mr. Burr received an equal number of electoral votes,
and under the Constitution the House of Representatives was called upon
to elect. Mr. Jefferson was chosen on the thirty-sixth ballot. He was
reelected in 1804, and retired finally from public life March 4, 1809.
He died on the 4th day of July, 1826, and was buried at Monticello, Va. John Adams died the same day.
 
Arron Burr killed Alexander Hamilton in a duel in 1804. Hamilton refused to shoot at Burr but Burr fired a mortal shot. Burr was later involved in high treason which is part of Jefferson’s Presidential Messages and Papers. Many Americans may find it interesting that Aaron Burr came so close to being the  third president of the United States over Thomas Jefferson.
