Thomas Jefferson purchased a 1,334 acre tract in Virginia, known first as “Indian Camp” and then later named Morven, as a testing ground for various agricultural methods and labor systems that presented alternatives to slavery. Scholars presented new research that reflected on Jefferson’s motivations, his relationship with anti-slavery visionary William Short, and their exchange of ideas on how to best manage this land. They presented their papers, some using graphics. Then Professor Gordon-Reed served as respondent before leading a discussion as they responded to questions from members of the audience. close
