Thomas Jefferson

http://www.loc.gov/exhibits/jefferson/jefffed.html

I am having difficulty answering a question pertaining to how Thomas Jefferson influenced the constitution of the US. First, he wasn't even at the convention, he was in France so I am trying prove the declaration of independence influenced the constitution but I am having truoble finding info to support this. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have already checked this site any many others but I cannot find any info on how TJ influence the constitution.

The site that BobPursley posted explains that Jefferson influenced the Constitution in letters written from France. Please reread the parts of the letters about freedom of the press, individual rights, and his endorsement of the Federalist Papers.


i need hel;p with tj
