The up to date information on the Jefferson-Hemings issue presents numerous sides to the question and would be beneficial to instructors in survey level classes. In addition, for upper division instructors, information is presented linking this controversy and its historiography to what Barbara Tuchman called, "the practice of history."
Some of the links to this site need to be updated, as the web sites they originally linked to no longer exist.
