Frederick Douglass – His Major Works as FREE Downloads!

Yesterday (Feb. 14) was the birthday attributed to Frederick Douglass, noted anti-slavery activist.

Douglass’s major works are all in the public domain, and we highlight them here, with links to download them as ebooks and audiobooks.

Life and Times of Frederick Douglass (1881, revised 1892)

 
Life and Times of Frederick Douglass is Frederick Douglass’ third autobiography, published in 1881, revised in 1892. Because of the emancipation of American slaves during and following the American Civil War, Douglass gave more details about his life as a slave and his escape from slavery in this volume than he could in his two previous autobiographies (which would have put him and his family in danger). It is the only one of Douglass’ autobiographies to discuss his life during and after the Civil War, including his encounters with American presidents such as Lincoln and Garfield, his account of the ill-fated “Freedman’s Bank”, and his service as the United States Marshall of the District of Columbia.
