1. Jefferson's famous liaison with Sally Hemings, of course, was precluded in the FANTL by his execution for treason in 1778. However, Jefferson is not highly regarded by British and North American historians, many of whom have spent the intervening two centuries digging up dirt on him. One of the things discovered during the early 1800s, and passed down as received wisdom ever since, was that he had several other sexual relationships with female slaves. Whether this is true, and whether the stories of coercion through force or threats have any basis in fact, has been the subject of debate for almost as long, with many USM historians asserting that they are nineteenth-century smears.
