THE LIFE OF FREDERICK DOUGLAS
Frederick Douglas was born in 1818 on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. He was named Frederick Augustus Washington Bailey (Baly), after his mother Harriet Bailey.
Born enslaved, Frederick Douglas made a dramatic escape by boat along the Atlantic waterway and become known around the world for his personal story, his orations and his writings in the cause of liberty.
Frederick Douglas served the U.S. government, advised President Lincoln, and invigorated the abolition movement which ultimately resulted in emancipation.
He was a fisherman, a ship carpenter and caulker, a sailor, a scholar and an educator. For to many youth today he is a legend, but he was a true hero.
