Finalist for the National Book Award for Nonfiction A startling and eye-opening look into America’s First Family, Never Caught is the highly effective story a couple of daring lady of “extraordinary grit” (The Philadelphia Inquirer). When George Washington was elected president, he reluctantly left behind his beloved Mount Vernon to serve in Philadelphia, the non permanent seat of the nation’s capital. In establishing his family he introduced alongside 9 slaves, together with Ona Judge. As the President grew accustomed to Northern methods, there was one change he couldn’t abide: Pennsylvania legislation required enslaved individuals be let loose after six months of residency within the state. Rather than comply, Washington determined to avoid the legislation. Every six months he despatched the slaves again down south simply because the clock was about to run out. Though Ona Judge lived a life of relative consolation, she was denied freedom. So, when the chance introduced itself one clear and nice spring day in Philadelphia, Judge left all the things she knew to flee to New England. Yet freedom wouldn’t come with out its prices. At simply twenty-two-years-old, Ona turned the topic of an intense manhunt led by George Washington, who used his political and private contacts to recapture his property. “A crisp and compulsively readable feat of analysis and storytelling” (USA TODAY), historian Erica Armstrong Dunbar weaves a robust story and gives fascinating new scholarship on how one younger lady risked all the things to realize freedom from the well-known founding father.
