Douglass, Frederick: Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass. v1 18 Nov 2010

Frederick Douglass was born in slavery in Maryland. He was not sure of the
exact year of his birth, but he knew that it was 1817 or 1818. As a
young boy he was sent to Baltimore, to be a house servant, where he
learned to read and write, with the assistance of his master's wife. In
1838 he escaped from slavery and went to New York City, where he married
Anna Murray, a free colored woman whom he had met in Baltimore. Soon
thereafter he changed his name to Frederick Douglass.

In 1841 he addressed a convention of the Massachusetts Anti-Slavery Society and so greatly impressed the group that they immediately employed him as an agent. He was such an impressive orator that many people doubted that he had ever been a slave, so he wrote the Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass in 1845.

During the Civil War he assisted in the recruiting of colored men
and consistently argued for the emancipation of slaves. After the war he
was active in securing and protecting the rights of the freemen. In his
later years, at different times, he was secretary of the Santo Domingo
Commission, Marshall and recorder of deeds of the District of Columbia,
and United States Minister to Haiti.

His other autobiographical works are My Bondage and my Freedom (available in the MobileRead library) and Life and Times of Frederick Douglass,
published in 1855 and 1881 respectively. He died in 1895.
