Frederick Douglass was the most conspicuous of the fugitive slaves. He was a mulatto, and had learned to read and write before he escaped from bondage. He became a noted traveler and lecturer under the auspices of the American Anti-Slavery Society, by his eloquence and vivid pictures of slave life attracting much attention in America and abroad. After the Civil War he held several political and governmental offices.
Slave owner Master Thomas found the young slave Frederick Douglas too unruly and thus sent Douglass to the farm of Edward Covey to put an end to that unruliness: i.e., to be broken. In this essay Douglass relates that experience and provides a vivid portrayal of conditions of pre-Civil War slavery.
