Reviews - What do customers think about Slave Children of Thomas Jefferson?

Sam Sloan's research is spot on.  May 25, 2008
Good research, good book. It boggles the mind as to how some people can continue to deny the Hemings-Jefferson relationship in lieu of all of the evidence.

This is a solid book for anyone interested in the controversy. Kudos to Mr. Sloan.
strange author  Nov 7, 2006
I have not read the book, but I saw it advertised on the author's website. I got to his website while looking for something else. He seems to be quite strange and even a little scary. I would highly recommend you look at his personal website before buying or reading any of his books.
Slave Children in context  Jul 1, 2006
This book was well researched. It is an independent work and does not seem to polished by an editor, but that does not take away from the content. He does use the interview of Madison and Eston a lot as well as extensive analysis of Jefferson's papers. He even critique's the arguments of other biographers and the partyline of the "Monticello Mafia"(Jefferson is/was morally incapable of fathering children by a slave). This argument seems ridiculous especially since he is known to have had an affair with a married woman.

They take this very seriously even on this site. If you look closely any book (including this one) that does not agree with their stance that Jefferson absolutely did not father Hemings children is reviewed negatively on this site by someone connected with the Jefferson Heritage society .

What this whole issue really comes down to is - Who is telling the truth? Do you believe the word of a slave or a slave owner?

What I found most interesting is that he makes the case for Jefferson fathering a child with another slave (not sally Hemings). He even has a photograph of a descendent of this child who looks remarkably like Jefferson.

Don't waste your time  Feb 20, 2002
Don't waste your time (or money). This book is almost as poorly written as it is poorly cited. The author obviously had no editor. There are nearly a half-dozen better choices if you want reliable information on Jefferson and the slavery connection.
Look at it as a diamond in the rough  Feb 12, 2001
The author asserts that Jefferson begot children with his slave and reminds the reader that this was not usual or shocking behavior for many antebellum Southern men. This book is amusing because of it's high spirited, conversational style and because of it's flaws. It could've been a very good book if only Mr. Sloan had sought out the services of a copy/content editor. The technical problems with the book are just too distracting.
