What I’m Reading: Life and Times of Frederick Douglass – 48 in a series – “to accomplish my escape seemed a very difficult thing.”

September 18th, 2019

“Held to a strict account, and kept under a close watch,— the old suspicion of my running away not having been entirely removed,—to accomplish my escape seemed a very difficult thing. The railroad from Baltimore to Philadelphia was under regulations so stringent that even free colored travelers were almost excluded.”

From Life and Times of Frederick Douglass: (An African American Heritage Book)

Why I'm Reading: He was whipped oftener who was whipped easiest.
