For Women's History Month, Oney Judge, The Escaped Slave Who Remained Free

For Women's History Month, I am honoring Oney Judge, Martha Washington's slave who escaped and outsmarted her captors to live her life in freedom.

Thanks for making ONEY an Amazon best seller.

A recent 5-star review:

Having taught the in-store of slavery as a teacher I was drawn to this story. It broke my heart reading about this beautiful girl. Would like to know if she has a marked grave.--Marilyn

Note to Marilyn and readers: Oney died in Greenland NH and was buried there. I live nearby, and researched where her grave could be. I went to the location where she may be buried, but it's not marked. I do wish it was known and marked.
