In an 1845 letter, Dr. John Croghan called the enslaved community of LG the "decidedly the most troublesome and worst property a man can have." In this lecture, researcher Heather Hiner will discuss the realities of slavery in 19th century KY, and how the Croghan and Clark families viewed slavery, weaving in stories of long-forgotten members of the Locust Grove enslaved community. Heather's new research offers a realistic picture of life at Locust Grove, and gives us the opportunity to remember and reflect on the lives and stories that have long gone unnoticed.
