Summary
"When George Washington was elected president, he ... left behind his beloved Mount Vernon to serve in Philadelphia, the temporary seat of the nation's capital ... In setting up his household he took Tobias Lear, his celebrated secretary, and nine slaves, including Ona Judge ... Though Ona Judge lived a life of relative comfort, the few pleasantries she was afforded were nothing compared to freedom, a glimpse of which she encountered first-hand in Philadelphia. So, when the opportunity presented itself ... Judge left everything she knew to escape to New England ... At just twenty-two-years-old, Ona became the subject of an intense manhunt led by George Washington, who used his political and personal contacts to recapture his property"--Amazon.com
