Advocate for equality and well-known personality of the 19th century, Frederick Douglass was born into slavery on a plantation in Maryland in 1818. Denoting enthusiasm and will, by age of fifteen he was well educated, independent and devoted to educating other slaves. In 1838, he sought the road to freedom and traveled by train to New York City. Douglass dedicated high efforts to speak against slavery, being an excellent orator who traveled all throughout North. In an act of courage, he announced his original name, his owner’s names, and birthplace in his autobiography. Being in danger of becoming again a slave, Douglass departed to British Isles, where British purchased his freedom and made it possible his return to U.S. He took active part in the Civil War, by recruiting African-Americans to join the Union Army and met with Abraham Lincoln to encourage Lincoln to transform the country into a free and equal in rights.
After the Civil War, in 1877, Frederick Douglass moved to his house in Washington, DC which is known as “Cedar Hill”. Douglass took several public positions: U.S. Marshal for the District of Columbia, the District's Recorder of Deeds, and the U.S. Minister to Haiti and Charge d' Affairés to the Dominican Republic. Douglass never stopped promoting his beliefs and worked to expand civil rights in the country until his death in 1895.
Douglass’s home and surrounding were government owned since 1962, and Congress officially declared The Frederick Douglass National Historic Site on February 12, 1988, to preserve his memory and legacy.
