Description
The belief that Thomas Jefferson had an affair and fathered one or more children with his slave Sally Hemings—and that such an allegation was proven by DNA testing—has become so pervasive in American popular culture that it is often taught as historical fact. Using courtroom standards for qualifying evidence, trial lawyer William Hyland argues that this "fact" is nothing more than the long accumulation of rumors and irresponsible scholarship, much of it inspired by political grudges, academic opportunism, and a trend of historical revisionism. Historians have the wrong Jefferson, Hyland insists, and looks instead to Randolph Jefferson, the president's wayward younger brother, who had a reputation for spending much of his time among the Monticello slaves.
