The Wider Image: 'Built by my family': America's grand buildings built by slaves
A replica of a house of enslaved people is seen at Monticello estate, home of Thomas Jefferson, the third President of the United States, in Charlottesville, Virginia, U.S., August 20, 2019. Jefferson, who drafted the Declaration of Independence, owned about 600 slaves over the course of his life at his 5,000-acre plantation. Built between 1769 and 1809, Monticello is one of the most famous of the hundreds of landmark American buildings constructed by slaves.
