Who was few weeksold himand his mother got kidnapped?

George Washington Carver was born into slavery. When George was only a week old, he, a sister, and his mother were kidnapped. His mother and sister were never seen again--NOTE, no where does it say she was sold into slavery, and in fact, she had already been a slave before the kidnapping! Soon after the kidnapping, George was found and ransomed, and was raised by his mother's former owner, Moses Carver. This occurred in Arkansas during the Civil War (1864 or 1865) when slavery was still practiced in the South. George Washington Carver later distinguished himself as an innovative scientist.The sad truth about this is that there were many cases of of women with newborns (especially male babies) or children being kidnapped with their mothers in European colonization of Africa and throughout history.If you are looking for some incident other than George Washington Carver, you will have to be more specific when asking a new question.NOTE: Some people have INCORRECTLY STATED that Booker T. Washington was this person. This info is completely wrong!
