Description
The author of In Glory's Shadow: The Citadel, Shannon Faulkner, and a Changing America and a Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist with the New York Times, Catherine Manegold here uncovers the persistent myth that slavery in America was a phenomenon of the South. Her history of slaveholding in New England centers on Ten Hills Farm, founded in 1630 on land just north of Boston by Massachusetts Bay Colony governor John Winthrop, and "makes vivid what has not so much been forgotten as suppressed" (Philadelphia Inquirer).

"Famous figures defend and transform Ten Hills, beginning with Manegold's epitomic Puritan, John Winthrop, founder of the farm and governor of the Massachusetts Bay Colony, and his son, John Jr. The Puritan is followed by William Ryall, the Immigrant, whose heirs Isaac Royall and Isaac Jr. morph into Master and Benefactor of Harvard, respectively.... Manegold's thoughtfully researched and eminently readable biography of this piece of land will allow no one to remain unaware of the North's extensive links to slavery and the slave trade."—Publishers Weekly
