DEDICATION OF WESSYNGTON MEMORIAL MONUMENT

The dedication ceremony at Wessyngton Plantation was a wonderful event!  There were more than 250 individuals who came together to pay tribute to the 446 African Americans enslaved on the estate from 1796 to 1865.  Many descendants of the slaves were there (Washingtons, Cheathams, Terrys, Gardners, Green, Scotts, and Lewises) as well as descendants of the Washington family.  Wessyngton Monument Back
