One House, Many People: Workers at Rose Hill

One response to “One House, Many People: Workers at Rose Hill”

  1. I am grateful for the historical work done here at Rose Hill. My family, the Gaytons, were enslaved in Virginia and brought north with Robert Selden Rose.

    A small critique- please do not refer to us as “enslaved workers”, but rather, “enslaved” is enough. What happened to us was horrifying, but using the term “workers” makes it seem that we had agency or control and that it was a profession.

    Otherwise, I sincerely appreciate everything that you have done!
