Douglass, Frederick: My escape from Slavery. v1 15 Nov 2010
Frederick Douglass was born a slave in Maryland around February 1818. He escaped in 1838, but in each of the three accounts he wrote of his life he did not give any details of how he gained his freedom lest slaveholders use the information to prevent other slaves from escaping, and to prevent those who had helped him from being punished.
He wrote this account in The Century Illustrated Magazine 23, n.s. 1 (Nov. 1881): 125-131 forty-three years after his escape.
