Resumen:

In Defense of Thomas Jefferson: The Sally Hemings Sex Scandal : The belief that Thomas Jefferson had an affair and fathered a child (or children) with slave Sally Hemings - and that such an allegation was proven by DNA testing - has become so pervasive in American popular culture that it is not only widely accepted but taught to students as historical fact. But as William G. Hyland Jr. demonstrates, this “fact” is nothing more than the accumulation of salacious rumors and irresponsible scholarship over the years, much of it inspired by political grudges, academic opportunism, and the trend of historical revisionism that seeks to drag the reputation of the Founding Fathers through the mud. In this startling and revelatory argument, Hyland shows not only that the evidence against Jefferson is lacking, but that in fact he is entirely innocent of the charge of having sexual relations with Hemings.
