Jefferson’s Other Declaration(post)
“Resolved, That the several States composing, the United States of America, are not united on the principle of unlimited submission to their general government . . .”
Those are the opening words of the Kentucky Resolution of 1798, authored by Thomas Jefferson. It is a classic statement of the real ideals of the founding generation, which created a confederacy of sovereign states that delegated a few powers to the “general government,” to act as their agent, and in their interest. This of course was all overthrown and abolished in 1865, the year that all Americans, North and South, were forced to submit by force of armed violence and the threat thereof to unlimited submission to their general government.
The Death of Thomas Jefferson(post)
Thomas Jefferson’s great nephew, Thomas Garland Jefferson, was one of the Virginia Military Institute cadets who was killed by the U.S. government in the Battle of New Market (Virginia) in May of 1864. (One Web site says that young Jefferson died “in the arms of his friend and fellow cadet, Moses Ezekiel”). The army that invaded New Market, Virginia, included many European mercenaries, many of whom were fresh from the jails of the Old World, who supposedly invaded Virginia at Abe Lincoln’s instruction to teach such people as young Thomas Garland Jefferson what it “really” meant to be an American, i.e., the communistic European idea of unlimited submission to the “supremacy” of the central government.
