Chapter 3 addresses the transformation of Georgia to Mount Clare, a showpiece country plantation owned by Charles Carroll the Barrister and his wife Margaret, as a result of slave labor. Enslaved blacks were the majority population, and their knowledge and experience sustained the objects and landscapes of Mount Clare. As a result, the Carroll’s history at Mount Clare is inseparable from that of enslaved blacks. This chapter outlines everyday life in the mansion, kitchen, orangerie, gardens, and other places.

Keywords:   Charles Carroll, Margaret Carroll, enslaved blacks, plantation
