Notes[edit]

  1. ^ Jefferson opposed slavery in theory and floated abolitionist plans which were never put into action. Hundreds of slaves worked on his plantations. Helo, p. 41, wrote that "it is important to see that his [Jefferson's] antislavery stance was primarily intended to protect the 'physical and moral characters' of white Americans." Gordon-Reed and Onuf, p. 149, note that as of 1790, "He and his fellow Virginians were not prepared to give up on an institution that sustained their way of life: for his generation at least, the project of abolishing slavery was effectively closed."[36][37]
