On this date in 1802, a rogue reporter James Callender reported that Mr. Jefferson had kept one of his slaves, Sally Heming's as his concubine. (history Channel).
Recently DNA has proven that indeed Mr. Jefferson did sire six children with Ms.Heming's.

Most interesting is the relationship between Jefferson and Callender.. And interesting study indeed.

In my humble opinion the term " concubine' conjures up images of evil prehistoric dinosaurs or such therefore i prefer the more simple term "doxy".:lol:
