Summary
Manuscript, 1983, of Daniel Porter Jordan's POLITICAL LEADERSHIP IN JEFFERSON'S VIRGINIA, which examines the ninety-eight elected individuals who represented Virginia in the United States Congress during the administrations of Thomas Jefferson (1801-1809), James Madison (1809-1817), and James Monroe (1817-1825) and is divided into three parts: who these men were in the context of the society in which they lived; how they became congressmen, including a discussion of the election practices of the period; their accomplishments in office and their relations with their constituents, each other, and with the state and federal government. The manuscript concludes with a discussion of the decline of Virginia's standing and power in politics. The manuscript includes two appendices which do not appear in the published book. Appendix I includes biographical sketches of individuals discussed, and Appendix II consists of county level returns for congressional elections in Virginia from 1799 to 1825
