These letters have NEVER BEEN PUBLISHED ANYWHERE BEFORE Ever since 1802 there have been rumors and reports that President Thomas Jefferson fathered children by his slaves. This book is the exhaustive work on that subject. It brings the controversy up to date by showing and explaining the results of new DNA tests conducted in 2007 to resolve the controversy. In addition, the author has uncovered previously unpublished letters by the Great Grand-Daughter of Sally Hemings which may provide clues to solving the mystery of what happened to Sally Hamings and those of her children who disappeared after Thomas Jefferson died.
