Was Washington For Slavery

1. What It Was Like To Be A Slave At George Washington's Mount Vernon

Many people know George Washington owned slaves, but what was life like for the slaves at Washington's Mount Vernon plantation? Hundreds of enslaved people toiled on the estate, where Washington expected them to work all day, six days a week. Many saw Washington as a harsh slave owner, and dozens of his slaves attempted to escape.

3. George Washington Spent Years Looking for Escaped Slave

“We've tended to be a little uncomfortable talking about George Washington and slavery,” historian Erica Armstrong Dunbar told InsideEdition.com. At the time of the founding father’s death in 1799, “there were nearly 300 enslaved people living at Mount Vernon,” she said. One formerly enslaved person who didn’t live there was Ona Judge. Judge escaped captivity in 1796. Until nearly the end of his life, Washington tried to recapture her. #InsideEdition

4. Ona Judge, George Washington's fugitive slave

Ona Judge, like many slaves in eighteenth century America, sought freedom by running away from those who claimed her as property to live life as a fugitive slave, always on the run. The people who were seeking her were George and Martha Washington, the first President of the United States and his wife.

5. George Washington & The SLAVERY #history #usa #shorts

As the first president of the United States, George Washington was a towering figure in American history, but his connections to slavery continue to spark controversy and debate. At the time of his death in 1799, Washington owned over 300 enslaved people on his Virginia plantation, Mount Vernon. While he expressed reservations about the morality of slavery and made some efforts towards ending it, he continued to own slaves throughout his life and benefited from their labor. Upon his death, his wife Martha inherited the slaves and chose to free them on January 1, 1801. While Washington was not an abolitionist, he did sign a slave trade act in 1794 that prohibited the building of ships for international slave trade, which paved the way towards the abolishment of slavery in the United States.

10. Harsh Life of Washington's Slaves Revisited

George Washington was born into a world where slavery was an accepted part of life. When his father died in 1743, Washington - at the age of 11 - inherited 10 slaves. When the nation's first president died in 1799, more than 300 slaves lived in quarters on his Mount Vernon estate. This year, those slave quarters, first opened to the public in 1962, went through an extensive archaeological analysis and restoration. These refurbished quarters shed new light on the story of the slaves who lived and worked at Mount Vernon.
