    [E–pub New] (Jefferson's Daughters Three Sisters White and Black in a Young America) AUTHOR Catherine Kerrison Read Jefferson's Daughters Three Sisters White and Black in a Young America This book is either a biographical history of Thomas Jefferson's three daughters 2 white and 1 black or a commentary on the plight of women in the late 18th century and early 19th Whatever it is it's a disappointment As a history of these three women there is plenty of source material upon which to track the lives of TJ's two surviv

Jefferson's Daughters Three Sisters White and Black in a Young America

Jefferson's Daughters Three Sisters White and Black in a Young America Read È E-book, or Kindle E-pub Ed a fine convent school education while they lived with their father during his diplomatic posting in Paris a hothouse of intellectual ferment whose celebrated salonnières are vividly brought to life in Kerrison's narrative Once they returned home however the sisters found their options limited by the laws and customs of early America Harriet Hemings followed a different path She escaped slavery apparently with the assistance of Jefferson himself Leaving Monticello behind she boarded a coach and set off for a decidedly uncertain future For this groundbreaking triple biography Kerrison has uncovered never before published documents written by the Jefferson sisters when. This is a definite must read for those who likes to read history especially American history Ever since I visited Monticello I have been fascinated with Martha Jefferson and Sally Hemmings This book even shared details of Maria Jefferson Thomas Jefferson s younger daughter whom nothing has been written much about I will admit that it wasn t till this past year that I realized that Thomas Jefferson had 2 daughters since not much was mentioned about Maria I didn t even know he had a third daughter till I read this book This is incredibly fascinating It is a historical research that is packed full of information about the three daughters that I am looking at history with a renewed interest This is not a novel by any means It embraces everything especially the issue of slavery and Jefferson s descendants who were born in slavery but left passing for white This is a heavily researched book on Jefferson and his impact on his daughters the people around him and while the rest of the nation celebrates his heritage as a founding father this book exposes his human flaws in the fact that he doesn t think his daughters have a voice in the new country It is an incredible read and one that I think would appeal to new readers to history as well as those who do research for a living Kerrison did a fine job of tying all the ends together in her research while admitting there is that is left to the ages because she doesn t have all the information What she has here is a great start and definitely information regarding Jefferson s daughters who ensured his comforts in his old age and made sure his legacies continued I personally think this is my favorite book so far on the Jefferson women I am enlightened now as to what his third daughter had endured when she left the plantation to be an independent woman While Harriet still remains shrouded in the veils of history Kerrison did her best to explain what Harriet had to endure as a slave as an unrecognized daughter of Jefferson and what might have happened to her once she left the plantation with her older brother Kerrison also devoted time to that time period where slaves would try to pass for white especially if they were lighter skinned It covers a sensitive subject that still resonates even today 200 years after the Revolution I would definitely recommend this book to everyone who is interested in history

Read Jefferson's Daughters Three Sisters White and Black in a Young America

Jefferson's Daughters Three Sisters White and Black in a Young America Read È E-book, or Kindle E-pub They were in their teens as well as letters written by members of the Jefferson and Hemings families She has interviewed Hemings family descendants and with their cooperation initiating DNA testing and searched for possible descendants of Harriet HemingsThe eventful lives of Thomas Jefferson's daughters provide a uniue vantage point from which to examine the complicated patrimony of the American Revolution itself The richly interwoven story of these three strong women and their fight to shape their own destinies sheds new light on the ongoing movement toward human rights in America and on the personal and political legacy of one of our most controversial Founding Fathers. Catherine Kerrison tells the stories of Martha Jefferson Randolf Maria Jefferson Eppes and Harriet Hemings Thomas Jefferson s three daughters who survived to adulthood Their lives show that when their father declared all men created eual he meant literally menAfter losing his wife Jefferson accepted an appointment to represent the new nation in Paris Martha went with him and enjoyed the convent school she attended She made lifelong friends and experienced female leadership and a curriculum usually reserved for men Maria when called to join them put up resistance as she did with her studies harpsichord practice letter writing and There is no record of how her 14 year old auntslave Sally Hemings who accompanied her felt about the tripWith little guidance from their father or anyone else teenage Martha Maria and Sally had to make choices for the woman they would become Sally s daughter s Harriet s choices came later and she seems to have had some practical preparation Were there were any real choices for women Everything rested on their patriarch and marriage was but reuired for Martha Maria and Harriet It turns out that Sally for whom marriage was not an option made the best choice You learn how the education Martha gave her girls who were all but barred from Jefferson s library was of little use to them There is an illusion to the volatility of her husband In the end Jefferson s casual solution to his debt thrust her into poverty Maria is presented as seeking security but to me she sounds spoiled and entitled Kerrison presents letters and records posing that the Eppes Maria s marriage was a husband and wife team but another interpretation is that Eppes was catering to her willfulness With no letters or uotes for Harriet Kerrison pours over Jefferson s Farm Book which lists purchases sales products and slaves births and harvests for clues She visits sites and supposes what Harriet would have experienced thought and felt Thomas Jefferson is aloof from Martha and Maria and according to the lack of a record so from Sally and Harriet He designed Monticello for his convenience and not his family s His educational priorities were music and embroidery for Martha and Maria and spinning for Harriet While Martha eventually moved her family to the plantation she was not involved in managing the Plantation or its finances on which her future and that of their daughters dependedOne story found in snippets tells the sad story of the times After Maria s death her husband before re marriage sired a shadow family with Betsy Hemmings p 165 who was a wedding gift of Jefferson in 1797 p320 He is buried alongside Betsy p 166 Martha Randolf Jefferson on her death bed p 310 tells her children to allow Betsy Sally and another to essentially live in peace ie not disclose the Jefferson linkThis book must include every snatch of the original material that remains available on these three women The tedious detail of this type of research is shown in her description of trying to find a trace of Harriet s life in WashingtonThe book held my interest throughout There are drawings and photos of significant places and several portraits The photos of the HemingsJefferson grandchildren are stunning The index worked for me

Review Í E-book, or Kindle E-pub Ø Catherine Kerrison

Jefferson's Daughters Three Sisters White and Black in a Young America Read È E-book, or Kindle E-pub The remarkable untold story of Thomas Jefferson's three daughters two white and free one black and enslaved and the divergent paths they forged in a newly independent America Thomas Jefferson had three daughters Martha and Maria by his wife Martha Wayles Jefferson and Harriet by his slave Sally Hemings In Jefferson's Daughters Catherine Kerrison a scholar of early American and women's history recounts the remarkable journey of these three women and how their struggle to define themselves reflects both the possibilities and the limitations that resulted from the American Revolution Although the three women shared a father the similarities end there Martha and Maria receiv. Catherine Kerrison has a difficult task in this book She wants to tell us about the three daughters that Founding Father Thomas Jefferson raised to adulthood I say raised because as you continue reading you discover just how little direct contact he often had with his daughters particularly Harriet who was born into slavery via her mother Sally Hemings Hemings had been promised freedom for her children when they turned 21 years old but Jefferson s gendered attitudes and belief in racial ineualities resulted in her never being given legal documents to protect her freed status Instead Harriet had to pass as white and thus disappeared from historical records to protect herself and her children Kerrison has a good chapter walking us through her look into every type of record she could to try and find out what happened to Harriet and it is a good example for wouldbe historians to understand History is not easy to construct if one is not of the most privileged group While there is no doubt that compared to other slaves Jefferson owned the Hemings children were treated better they were still treated as his slaves because they wereJefferson s daughter Maria leaves behind records of her life yet because she was not the chosen companion of her father we do not have as much as we do from the older daughter Martha that s I ll write about in the next paragraph Maria comes across as a very different personality though how much of that reflects innate differences versis how they were raised and how much contact they had with their father Maria did marry and have children but she died relatively young Even though Jefferson claimed her death touched him given the information that Kerrison shares his grief felt weak to meThe daughter Jefferson was closest to Martha was the one whom we know most about because she functioned in many ways as first lady in the family and in his political career Martha s personality seems to change dramatically from her early life in America to her years in France to her return to America At first we might hope she s learned to see all humans as human from her years in a convent but records about her life back at her father s and then her plantation show she thoroughly bought into the philosophy underlying slavery and enforced itAt times the text is challenging to follow If the chapters had been laid out one sister and then another it would have been clearer to follow perhaps but the text is chronologically arranged The switching between sisters experiences and describing the world they live in feels overwhelming at times I believe their experiences could have been better differentiated at times to help a layperson understand easilyEven as a historian who has studied gender and slavery this book was emotionally challenging to read It should be difficult to read and Kerrison has done a good job of not toning down the realities
