1482 Jefferson and The Ordeal of Liberty: Jefferson and His Time Volume Three, by Dumas Malone (read 1 Apr 1978) This volume takes Jefferson up to his election as President--to Feb 18, 1801. to be exact. During the nine years covered by this volume, Jefferson was in retirement from the end of 1793 till he assumed the Vice-Presidency in 1797. In Jefferson's times the campaigns are dispatched in a few paragraphs. He did next to nothing in the campaigns of 1796 and 1800 and so those campaigns take little space in this volume. These volumes are satisfactory reading. ( )
