Our first five presidents owned slaves, but it was George Washington, our founding father that owned the most. Out of 317 slaves, six became household names in American history books.

The most well-known slave was William “Billy” Lee. Washington bought William “Billy” Lee from Colonel John Lee for 61 pounds and 15 shillings. That’s about $79 U.S. dollars today. He became Washington’s personal servant and was also the most recognized slave because Washington wanted him in paintings of himself. He was the first slave Washington freed.

Historians portray Washington as a kind slave owner. After all, he included his favorite slave in his paintings. There is a different story about Washington, the real story. Take 2 minutes to see what kind of slave owner Washington really was.
