Summary
The second part of a two-part documentary which examines the life of Thomas Jefferson, third President of the United States and author of the Declaration of Independence. In this segment a mature Jefferson returning from France, strives to preserve the fragile American government and helps create the first political party through his bitter struggles with the Federalists. As President he doubles the size of the country with the Louisiana Purchase but faces scandal and controversy, finally retiring to his beloved Monticello. After having advanced the religious, political and intellectual freedom of citizens of the new United States, his last years are spent founding the University of Virginia and re-establishing his friendship with John Adams
