Restores the contributions of African Amer. (AA) to the legacy of Mt. Vernon -- the magnificent estate of our first pres., George and Martha Washington. But behind the familiar stories lies a history that visitors  to Mt. Vernon never hear: the experiences of the hundreds of AA who played an essential part in creating and maintaining this shrine during the century after Washington’s death. Sarah Johnson spent more than 50 years at Mt. Vernon, in slavery and after emancipation. Through her life and those of her family and friends, Casper provides an intimate picture of Mt. Vernon’s operation during the 19th and early 20th cent., years that are rarely part of its public story. “Adds a new layer to the story of America’s most popular historical estate.” Illustrations.
