Photograph - Photograph
George Washington as a farmer, standing among enslaved African-American field workers harvesting grain, with Mt. Vernon in background. The image, created in 1850s, during the contentious decade prior to the Civil War, was likely espousing the pro-slavery position by depicted a founding father as a benign slave holder.
