Absorbing book, a real page turner. The author explores the attitudes toward historic preservation and toward George Washington through the true story of a former slave who worked at Mt. Vernon for many years after emancipation and became a valued and respected employee. The black history of Mt. Vernon has become part of its story only in recent years and is well worth the exploration. It's very well researched and written and I expect it will win some prizes in the field of history writing.
