Erasure of Slavery from George Washington's House
History has depicted George Washington as America’s finest man. We are made to believe he was free from immoral behavior, most specifically in his use of slaves, due to the way his life is portrayed and supplemented through these postcards. It is the lack of presence that we wanted to focus on and how the erasing of people from these postcards is used as a method to cover up the truth of Washington's living arrangements.
