Chad-Why does Monticello chose to exclude any reference to slavery in the "personal" column of this timeline? Were the births of the Jefferson-Hemings children not as important as the Jefferson-Wayles births? It's laudable that Monticello is developing interpretation about slavery but, sadly, it is segregated from the main story about Jefferson. This enables Jefferson to be divested from his decisions to own, beat, and rape African Americans so that he can sit atop an uncomplicated pedestal of enlightenment thought, gardening, and science. You are better than this.
