  • The night Adams was supposed to leave office, he appointed many new judges. Marshall was in charge of these appointments, but he gave his job to Madison. Jefferson was against the appointments, and told Madison not to deliver them. However, when Marbury never received his, he got angry and brought this to court. The Supreme Court practiced their new power, judicial review, and declared the law that allowed Marbury to bring the case to court unconstitutional. 
  • Hamilton vs. Burr
  • The Americans wanted to expand their nation, despite Jefferson's belief of having a small government. They started to move to Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee, through the natural passage through the Appalachian Mountains, the Cumberland Gap.

  • Even though Jefferson wanted to keep the government small, when Napoleon offered him the land of Louisiana for $15 million dollars, he went ahead and bought it. Jefferson just couldn't resist that deal.
