  • Excellent handling of controversial history Jan 29, 2009
    by StarlightWoods

    Excellent handling of a sensitive historic subject that has been too long ignored and disclaimed. Modern DNA testing confirms what Thomas Jefferson's acknowledged (white) descendants refuse to accept--That he fathered all of Sally Hemmings' children. Contrary to many similar liaisons of the time, the author's research seems to show that Mr. Jefferson deeply cared for and respected Ms. Hemmings and that their relationship was one of mutual love and commitment highly unusual for the time.
