George Washington’s List of Enslaved People’s 1799

My data set: George Washington Enslaved Peoples 1799

My visualization:

I used the transcript of George Washington’s Enslaved People’s in 1799 as my data set for my visualization. I used the records from the Mansion House and identified name, age, spouse, and ownership. After inputting my data set into Flourish I immediately noticed a slew of problems. It was reading each entry numerically which meant I had to change spouse entries from yes or no to 90 and 0 to accommodate. I did this for both George and Martha as well. I think my revision will look to adjust this accordingly or perhaps use a different software.
