Tobacco grower George Washington, the first president of the United States, inherited his first 10 slaves in 1743 when he was eleven years old. He ended up paying taxes on 135 of his slaves by 1774. Washington owned many slaves until his death in 1799.

—-from GEORGE WASHINGTON AND SLAVERY: A DOCUMENTARY PORTRAYAL, a book by Fritz Hirschfeld that was published by the University of Missouri Press in 1997.

George Washington’s picture appears on the front side of every $1 bill in America. More than two billion of them were printed by the U.S. Bureau of Engraving and Printing in 2012.
