Thomas Jefferson was the principal author of the Declaration of Independence and part of the Continental Congress during the Revolution.  He was the first U.S. minister to France and served as secretary of state under George Washington.  He was elected vice president in 1797, serving under John Adams, and in 1801 he was elected president.  Jefferson oversaw the purchase of the Louisiana Territory in 1803 and sent Lewis and Clark to explore the new west. In 1807, he signed a law banning the importation of slaves.  Thomas Jefferson spoke five languages and was an inventor who had a deep interest in architecture, science, religion and philosophy.  Jefferson expressed opposition to slavery but owned hundreds and only freed a few.

The biographical History Mugs were created to teach and inspire individuals to learn about our diverse and interesting history.  The biographies were researched and written by history enthusiast, Robert Compton.  He colorized most of the historic photos and images used on the mugs, which were originally black and white or sepia-tone.  The images and biographies are imprinted on mugs at his studio in rural Vermont.
