Join us for an online/virtual tour of Frederick (Bailey) Douglass heritage sites in Maryland and Washington, D.C., as well a discussion on how Frederick successfully escaped from Baltimore City in 1838 and succeeded to be an active conductor on the Underground Railroad at his home in Rochester, New York en route to Canada until the eve of the Civil War. Learn about his connections to John Brown!
Our program will focus on Frederick Douglass’ inspirational life and feature many of the sites within the Washington, D.C. and Baltimore metropolitan area associated with his life. We’ll include an overview of the Eastern Shore, Baltimore City, Old Anacostia, as well as Harper’s Ferry in West Virginia.
Your hosts for this program are John Muller, co-founder of Lost History USA (www.losthistoryUSA.com) and author of Frederick Douglass in Washington, D.C.: The Lion of Anacostia, and Justin McNeil, co-founder of Lost History USA.
The program is being offered in partnership with Robert Kelleman, founder/director of the non-profit community organization Washington, DC History & Culture. Robert has led many in-person tours of Underground Railroad sites in Maryland and Washington, DC.
