George's Home…

Mount Vernon, VA – First Presidential Home

I have visited Mount Vernon on three separate occasions now and I think I see something new each time.  This time they provided more info about the slaves of the estate.  It is nice to see that done. Yes, many of our founders were from Virginia and all of them had slaves even Thomas Jefferson who at least via his writings believed in the equality of man.  Until recent time presidents were left on their own after they vacated the Oval Office. There was no pension, secret service agents or such….
