Colonial Virginia's Free People of Color

BAY Area author Anita Wills releases her controversial book "Notes and Documents of Free Persons of Color: Colonial Virginia 1650-1850," in December. The book chronicles the lives of several families through legal documents, newspaper clippings, military and court records, and provides a clear historical picture of the lives of free persons of color in colonial Virginia. Of particular interest are the profiles of Mary and Patty Bowden, who served indentures for George Washington's family at Pope's Creek in Westmoreland County, Va. Wills' book is available through Heritage Books, Inc. and in bookstores nationwide.
