        Harry Washington | The African Americans

        This video from The African Americans: Many Rivers to Cross describes the life of Harry Washington, a slave owned by George Washington at the beginning of the American Revolution. Sensing that the talk of liberty and independence was not meant for slaves, Harry Washington joined the Loyalist regiment, the Black Pioneers, along with 20,000 slaves who decided to fight for the British.
