BK163 | $ 14.99
This book is a behind the scenes look at the President's House and Samuel "Black Sam" Fraunces. "Black Sam" had been forgotten in Philadelphia except for the Pennsylvania State Marker honoring his former tavern at 310 S. Second Street in Old City, Downtown Philadelphia, PA. It was located a few yards from the former executive mansion where Washington housed his enslaved African and where "Black Samuel Fraunces" served as steward of the President's House.
