Yeah so was Jefferson...a slave owner, that is

But neither of them...were hypocrites. You are being a monday-morning quarterback.

Henry and Jefferson were in the context of their time...and unfortunately, that included many of the wrongs that occured, such as slavery

The ideas that Henry and Jefferson and the other Founders introduced through the Declaration of Independence and had within them the kernels of freedom that EVENTUALLY led to led to the END of slavery.
