characters Jefferson's Daughters Three Sisters White and Black in a Young America Free download º Jefferson's Daughters Three Sisters White and Black in a Young America 104 Catherine Kerrison ☆ 4 review 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

I read this book slowly as I wanted time to research a few items that I d read OMG The author outdid herself This has to be one of the best researched novels of Jefferson s daughters If you ve read First Daughter then this book is a MUST read You will gain insights that you would not have even thought of prior to reading this story It s a standalone novel you do not need to do prior reading but it does help you understand the Jefferson family and their role in forming this countryI did not realize that his wooded retreat was three days from Monticello Everyone else made out like it was just a few miles in the woods Jefferson s architectural building concepts were so far ahead of his time it s not funny Though I found it very odd that he chose to give himself the best lit rooms and then locked the library To visit his sanctuary was by permission only An absolute treat for the mind A book that I am sure I will re read than a few times in the coming years
