In the Shadow of Liberty: The Hidden History of Slavery, Four Presidents, and Five Black Lives by Kenneth C. Davis

Did you know that many of America’s Founding Fathers—who fought for liberty and justice for all—were slave owners?

Through the powerful stories of five enslaved people who were “owned” by four of our greatest presidents, this book helps set the record straight about the role slavery played in the founding of America. From Billy Lee, valet to George Washington, to Alfred Jackson, faithful servant of Andrew Jackson, these dramatic narratives explore our country’s great tragedy—that a nation “conceived in liberty” was also born in shackles.

These stories help us know the real people who were essential to the birth of this nation but traditionally have been left out of the history books. Their stories are true—and they should be heard.

This thoroughly-researched and documented book can be worked into multiple aspects of the common core curriculum.

I found this book heartbreaking, informative and fascinating. Many aspects of enslavement have been left out of the history books, so I welcomed reading this un sanitized version of our inhumanity to man, and the exposure of hypocrisy.

The time is now near at hand which must probably determine, whether Americans are to be, Freemen, or Slaves. Maybe you've heard that George Washington had wooden teeth. That's false — an old legend. Nobody is even sure how it got started. It is true that Washington lost most of his own teeth, which was hardly unusual in the days before modern dentists and fluoride toothpaste. Over the years, Washington owned several sets of false teeth.
