Episode Details

Thomas Jefferson's inauguration as president in 1801 represented a significant transfer of power as well as vision about the future of America. As Jefferson and the nation increasingly looked westward, we explore what this meant in terms of territorial expansion, relations with American Indians and the emerging conflicts between nationalism and sectionalism.
