I think they had Jefferson back down because they where afraid of PC people calling them racist. I also see those people like in 'Andrew Jackson and Harriet Tubman on 20 dollar bill' thing. They don't look into the facts that Jackson is a massive figure in history and why the Indian removal happened, and they glorify Tubman not because of what she did, but because she's a black woman.
Frederick Douglass (originally named Frederick Augustus Washington Bailey) was born around 1818; he didn't know his date of birth so he chose to celebrate his birthday on February 14 as records of African Americans were not kept at the time (Fredrick Douglass Heritage). He was born on Holmes Hill in Talbot County, Maryland; his mother, Harriet Bailey was a slave and Frederick’s father was presumably a white man who was believed to be their master. After Harriet died in 1825 when he was 7 or 8, he was sent to live with his elderly grandmother Betty Bailey which also hosted 12 other kids which were his brothers, sisters, and cousins. A year later he was separated from his grandmother now becoming a servant to Hugh Auld. Hugh Auld’s wife Sophia started teaching Frederick the alphabet ignoring the law, but Auld came in and believed slaves should not be educated so he stopped the teachings Frederick though, learned it from his white friends( Fredrick Douglass Heritage). His grasp and hatred on slavery growed with reading, he sought any literature he could find and stated reading. He was soon put to a “slave breaker” named Edward Convey who broke Frederick mentally and physically with abuse and torture but over a fight with Edward, Fredrick won and Edward didn’t touch him for six months in which Frederick triumphed and felt accomplished( Britannica School). In 1835 Frederick and his four friends planned to go north to escape slavery. They were caught and arrested where he was freed by Hugh Auld, but Auld sent him to caulk ships in Baltimore. In 1838 Frederick plotted to escape again, He got a free pass from a black sailor who was his friend. On Monday September 3rd, 1838 was when he escaped, he was on a train carrying seamen, and passed inspection from his free papers and got to New York in a matter of 24 hours. He reunited with Ana Murray who helped him escape with a sailor uniform and some money. Frederick after his safe arrival, married her on September 15, 1838 as he was in love with her ( Biography). And they changed their married name to Douglass to avoid being recaptured in slavery. Frederick read the Liberator an antislavery newspaper, attended antislavery meetings, and held his own antislavery convention in 1843, where he gave a speech about life as a slave that started his career as a abolitionist. He worked for the Massachusetts Antislavery Society, gaining subscribers for the Liberator with his speeches; he also made his own newspaper called the North Star. He wrote 3 separate versions of his biography which dispelled any disagreements with his past. He did not stop being an abolitionist for slavery until Lincoln Emancipation proclamation declared slaves free. After that, his goal was women’s rights, and all African Americans to be equal. He went to Liverpool, Ireland, and Great Britain to escape capture of his former slaves. English Quakers funded Fredrick enough money to go to America a legally free man. He convinced Lincoln to use black troops in the army and for them to get equal pay. From 1871 to 1891 he held many offices, and he defended the 15th amendment to give blacks the right to vote; and he has also supported women’s rights which he attended many conventions for. When Ana Murray died in 1882, with five children to take care of, he remarried to Helen Pitts. Frederick sadly died on February 20, 1895 of an unexpected heart attack(Fredrick Douglass Heritage).
