1803 Marbury vs. MadisonSoon after taking office, Jefferson noticed that a stack for new judges had not been delivered. Before Jeffersons inauguration, President Adams appointed loyal Federalists to new judgeships. Why? Jefferson was outraged when he saw them and told his Secretary of State James Madison not to deliver them. 1803 Marbury vs. MadisonOne man who did not receive his commission was William Marbury. Marbury claimed that the Judiciary Act of 1789 gave the Supreme Court the power to force federal officials to perform their duties. Marbury argued, the court could order Madison to give him his commission.Outcome of Marbury vs MadisonIn 1803, the outcome of the case of Marbury vs. Madison forever changed the relationship of the three branches of government. The Judiciary Act of 1789 was unconstitutional because the Constitution did not grant such power to the Court. Therefore the Supreme Court could not force Madison to give Marbury his commission.

Louisiana Purchase 1803In 1803, Jefferson doubled the size of the United States by buying Louisiana from France. President Jefferson sent James Monroe to France. His mission was to persuade Napoleon to sell New Orleans to the United States. Luckily France was on the brink of war with Great Britain. Napoleon knew that he did not have a strong enough navy to protect French lands in North America.Louisiana Purchase 1803Choices for Napoleon: British take the Louisiana Territory or he sells it and makes money to fight the BritishOn April 30, 1803, he signed a treaty with France in which the United States agreed to buy Louisiana from France for about $15 million dollars. (about 3 cents per acre) $15 million in 1803 = about $300,000,000 todayLouisiana Purchase 1803
