Quote from the Text

“...the same age as Thomas Jefferson when as a young man Thomas began to manage a large plantation and 250 employees in Virginia (both his parents being deceased).”

Weapons of Mass Destruction by John Taylor Gatto, p. 29

Fact Check

According to The Practice of Slavery at Monticello on monticello.org, Jefferson “owned 607 men, women, and children, sold or gave away over 100 enslaved people, and purchased around 20 individuals.”

They were not employees.
