Frederick Douglass

Frederick Douglass was born into slavery on the Eastern Shore of Maryland in February 1818. On September 3, 1838, he disguised himself as a sailor, boarded a northbound train, and successfully escaped slavery. To avoid being captured and re-enslaved, Douglass traveled to England, Ireland, and Scotland, giving speeches and lectures. When abolitionists offered to purchase his freedom, Douglass returned to the U.S., in Rochester, New York. There, Douglass was involved in the Underground Railroad, Abolition, Women's Rights, and recruitment of African-American men to fight in the U.S. Army. At the time, Douglass met personally with President Abraham Lincoln. In 1872, the Douglass family moved to Washington, D.C. where Douglass held multiple high-level Government Official and Diplomatic positions. His residence is now a historical site preserved by the U.S. National Park Service.
