“I cannot live without books.”

― Thomas Jefferson

 

Thomas Jefferson’s ‘Notes on the State of Virginia’ was his written response to various questions he had been asked about Virginia by French secretary Francois Barbe-Marbois. This book is regularly considered the most important American book published before 1800 (Bernstein). This book is important for many reasons, but it gives insight to Jefferson’s views on slavery, Native Americans, important laws, powers given to the people and the government, as well as how to exhaust resources reserved for the military.

 

This book instilled fear in many slave owners, out of fear that their ‘property’ would be taken from them and that an emancipation would become imminent. In addition to the more controversial topics, Jefferson discussed the geography and topography of Virginia, religious views of Colonial America, and important state-papers.
