Location: Joseph-Beth Cincinnati 

Join us for Jinny Berten signing By His Side: The Story of George Washington and William Lee.

By His Side, a work of historical fiction, tells the story of George Washington and his enslaved valet, William Lee. Set at Mount Vernon during the last three days of Washington’s life the book explores Washington’s changing views of slavery, his flashbacks to events that took place during the Revolutionary War and the part that William Lee played in those events. By His Side also looks at these subjects through the eyes of William Lee. He remembers being bought by General Washington, being made head of the fox hunt, riding beside the General during the Revolution, carrying his spyglass, combing his hair and hearing decisions made that would affect battles.
