Who HQ 2-Pack Featuring Who Was Frederick Douglass and Who Was Harriet Tubman.
Who HQ 2-Pack Featuring Who Was Frederick Douglass and Who Was Harriet Tubman. Frederick Douglass: Born into slavery in Maryland in 1818, Frederick Douglass was determined to gain freedom—and once he realized that knowledge was power, he secretly learned to read and write to give himself an advantage. After escaping to the North in 1838, as a free man he gave powerful speeches about his experience as a slave. He was so impressive that he became a friend of President Abraham Lincoln, as well as one of the most famous abolitionists of the nineteenth century. Harriet Tubman: orn into slavery in Maryland, Harriet Tubman knew first-hand what it felt like to be disrespected and treated like property; she was whipped by owners and nearly killed by an overseer. When she heard about the Underground Railroad, Harriet Tubman was determined to be free and traveled by herself north to Philadelphia. She would return to the South many times and help guide dozens of other enslaved people to freedom. As a spy for the Union Army during the Civil War and an activist for women's rights, Harriet Tubman is proof of what just one person can do.
