"The men who came together to found the independent United States," writes Edmund S. Morgan, "either held slaves or were willing to join hands with those who did." George Washington, hero of the Revolution, was the master of several hundred slaves. Thomas Jefferson, author of the Declaration of Independence, owned more than two hundred men, women, and children while eloquently defending the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

Morgan investigates the bond between slavery and freedom that lies at the very heart of our nation.
