dc.description.abstractThomas Jefferson has long been admired for his influence in many arenas in the colonial era of American history; however, his collection of writings has not been closely scrutinized for his geographic thought. This thesis will look at Thomas Jefferson's early life and his writings until 1784, to provide a survey of his geographic thought. It will look at his work in surveying, cartography, climatology, his influence on military movements during the Revolutionary War, his contribution to the Public Land Survey System, and the compilation of Notes on the State of Virginia. By reviewing Thomas Jefferson's collection of writings, we can see how his geographic thought evolved and how it may have influenced future contributions to the field of geography.eng
