A failure? Explain. Reconstruction was a success in that it restored the United States as a unified nation: by 1877, all of the former Confederate states had drafted new constitutions, acknowledged the Thirteenth, Fourteenth, and Fifteenth Amendments, and pledged their loyalty to the U.S. government.
Egyptians failed to stop grave robbers from robbing the piramids of its jewels. they attempted to make a smooth side piramid but failed.
You could check in that.

First of all, her family is very poor, so they have to move all the time in order for her parents to find a job and support their family. Even when things start going the right way, something bad happens, and they are made to move again in search of money and happiness. They are constantly starving, with no proper living conditions. Even when she manages to come into some money, her drunken father steals it from her and she is made poor all over again. Her family is in a disarray - her father is an alcoholic who was abused as a child, her mother suffers from nervous breakdowns, her sister tried to stab her mother, etc. Jeannette resorts to theft with her father, and is almost raped by an older man during one such event.
However, not everything is bleak - the family ultimately love each other and try to be together for as long as they can. Sometimes they have money, which is the time when Jeannette can finally be happy because her dad is not drinking and there are no problems for the time being. Sometimes she manages to find a job and help her family. At one point, she decides to leave her parents for good and go to New York to attend a college there, and she manages to land a job and become successful enough so that she can bring her siblings to live with her in New York.
However, the presidency is such a tough job to do, therefore we can't expect anyone in the office to be perfect.
Here are the some of his achievements and at the same time failures during his term of office.
1. He purchased more than 800,000 square miles of Louisiana Territory from France, thus expands the US territory.
2. He launched an expedition to learn more about the Native American tribes and to find a water passage between Mississippi River and the Pacific Ocean.
- It was, by the way, the Lewis and Clark Expedition whom he sent.
3. He founded the University of Virginia
- He believed that education creates leaders not just preachers or professors. This university was actually the first non-sectarian university and the first to use the elective course system in the US.
4. He pioneered in sustainable agriculture.
- He was a huge fan of eating vegetables which he grew by himself. After all, vegetables are good for our health. No preservatives and vitamins can outweigh the benefits we could get from vegetables aside fruits.
5. He advocated free public education.
The bill which had written in 1779 laid the groundwork for free public education in Virginia.
1. He did not end nor fight against slavery.
- He actually owned slaves himself and that's a contributing factor why he failed in this area.
2. He wasn't successful in dealing with Great Britain and France with the US interference in trade.
- France and Great Britain were actually at war. Each party wanted to prevent the American goods from reaching their enemy so they seized the American ships to reach their rival.
3. The Embargo Act of 1807, a law passed by the US Congress and signed by President Jefferson was a complete failure.
- This law prohibits the American ships from trading to all foreign ports. And it was a failure because the US economy depended mostly on trade.
4. His military policies mostly had negative effects.
- It's probably because of his reluctance to support the military establishment.
I can't find more failures of his presidency because most of them are successes.
