Abstract

This paper looks at the presidencies of Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, and James Monroe. The main purpose will be to demonstrate that there are a great deal of similarities among the three men and their styles of governing from the highest office in the land. The paper will look at aspects of their presidency, including their inaugural addresses, contacts with Native Americans, and how they viewed their role within the confines of the United States Constitution. All of these similarities lead to the conclusion that Jefferson, Madison, and Monroe can, and should, be treated more as a continuation presidency, as opposed to three separate ones. This paper will also look at why these three presidents can be considered the first American political dynasty, despite the fact that there is no blood relation between them.
