Determined people like Ona Maria Judge, who tended to Martha Washington's needs day and night, but who still managed, one fateful day, to slip away and sail to freedom. McClafferty also explains in clear terms the property laws of the day that complicated George Washington's eventual decision to free the people he owned, and the modern-day archaeological survey at Mount Vernon's Slave Cemetery that is uncovering new information about a burial ground that was nearly forgotten to time."--Page [2] of cover.
