Asked in Abraham Lincoln
What famous African-American abolistionist became the personal friend of Abraham Lincoln?
It was Frederick Douglass and he and Abe Lincoln were coined "Giants in the Cause of Freedom." Abraham Lincoln was born to poverty in Kentucky with a Grade 1 education, but was an extremely intellectual man with a great deal of drive. He made himself one of Illinois' most sought-after lawyers and eventually became President of the U.S. Frederick Douglass was born into slavery. His autobiography remains the United States greatest document on slavery as a way of life, and it was a life he hated. He ran away to New York, and then, returning to America, Douglass became the leading African American champion of abolitionism. Lincoln was a moderate, like the new Republican Party he belonged to. He hated slavery, but WAS NOT an abolitionist. He wanted to end slavery, but not at the cost of the Union. Douglass was a radical. He advocated even violent tactics to end slavery. Lincoln remained moderate. His goal was the preservation of the Union and the Constitution, but he came to believe that emancipating the slaves would ensure both served. The two men's views frequently conflicted, and they were not natural allies even though each represented millions of Americans who despised slavery. There was a third faction in American that brought them together .. the proponents of slavery and when the war in 1861 they were thrown together. Douglass actively recruited black soldiers for the Union side. Lincoln twice invited Douglass to the White House to advise him on issues pertaining to black Americans. Douglass strongly encouraged Lincoln to issue the Emancipation Proclamation, which he did. After the war, and after Lincoln's death, Douglass became a part of the Republican establishment in Washington, holding appointed office in the Hayes and Garfield administration. It took another century for many black Americans to fully attain the rights of citizens, but the prominence of Frederick Douglass held through his until his death in 1895 and continued to convince succeeding generations that racial equality could be achieved. Douglass was critical of Lincoln's moderation, addressed the white people in his audience saying "While Abraham Lincoln saved for you a country, he delivered us from bondage ... one hour of which was worse than ages of the oppression your fathers rose in rebellion to oppose." At the same time he knew that without Lincoln, freedom would not have happened. Speaking for his race he said, "In view of the divinity which shapes our ends, rough hew them how we will, we came to the conclusion that the hour and the man of our redemption had somehow met in the person of Abraham Lincoln." Douglass and Lincoln were never really friends, but both respected each other. Douglass often referred to President Lincoln as "the first martyr President of the United States." Marcy
What were the ideas of William Lloyd Garrison?
William Lloyd Garrison was the author of the Liberator. Before and During the Civil War he was a highly active abolitionist who strongly supported the freeing of slaves, he met and supported both John Brown and Fredrick Douglass. After the Civil War he went on to fight for other big disputes like Women's rights. Garrison was an advocate of nonviolence resistance. There is no evidence that he supported the murderous John Brown. In fact, Frederick Douglas did not support John Brown either.
The declaration of war in 1812 was strongly opposed by whom?
Was Frederick Douglass was education?
I don't know about Fredrick Douglass, but you sure weren't 'education'!!! Also, there's a wonderful site called Wikipedia for lazy people who don't want to do their research! When Douglass was about twelve years old, Hugh Auld's wife Sophia started teaching him the alphabet despite the fact that it was against the law to teach slaves to read. Douglass described her as a kind and tender-hearted woman, who treated Douglass like one human being ought to treat another. When Hugh Auld discovered her activity, he strongly disapproved, saying that if a slave learned to read, he would become dissatisfied with his condition and desire freedom. Douglass later referred to this statement as the "first decidedly antislavery lecture" he had ever heard. As told in his autobiography, Douglass succeeded in learning to read from white children in the neighborhood and by observing the writings of men with whom he worked. Mrs. Auld one day saw Douglass reading a newspaper; she ran over to him and snatched it from him, with a face that said education and slavery were incompatible with each other. He continued, secretly, to teach himself how to read and write. Douglass is noted as saying that "knowledge is the pathway from slavery to freedom." As Douglass began to read newspapers, political materials, and books of every description, he was exposed to a new realm of thought that led him to question and condemn the institution of slavery. In later years, Douglass credited The Columbian Orator, which he discovered at about age twelve, with clarifying and defining his views on freedom and human rights. When Douglass was hired out to William Freeland, he taught other slaves on the plantation to read the New Testament at a weekly Sunday school. As word spread, the interest among slaves in learning to read was so great that in any week, more than 40 slaves would attend lessons. For about six months, their study went relatively unnoticed. While Freeland was complacent about their activities, other plantation owners became incensed that their slaves were being educated. One Sunday they burst in on the gathering, armed with clubs and stones, to disperse the congregation permanently.
