Born into a life of slavery, Ona Judge eventually grew up to be George and Martha Washington 's "favored " dower slave. When she was told that she was going to be given as a wedding gift to Martha Washington 's granddaughter, Ona made the bold and brave decision to flee to the north, where she would be a fugitive. From her childhood, to her time with the Washingtons and living in the slave quarters, to her escape to New Hampshire, Erica Armstrong Dunbar (along with Kathleen Van Cleve), shares an intimate glimpse into the life of a little-known, but powerful figure in history, and her brave journey as she fled the most powerful couple in the country.
Map. Author 's note. Time line. Ona Judge 's interview with the Granite Freeman. Selected bibliography.
