Description
"George Washington's residence, Mount Vernon, holds a special place in U.S. history. However, its history of slavery has remained largely hidden until recently. While the Founding Father fought for liberty, he also enslaved many people, and it can be difficult to understand this contradiction. This thought-provoking book uses the discoveries of archaeologists as well as accounts from Mount Vernon visitors and Washington himself to shed light on the lives of the enslaved workers who lived there. Eye-catching photographs and informative sidebars help readers develop a deeper understanding of the text"--,Provided by publisher.
