Frederick Douglass was born in Tuckahoe, New York, not knowing of his age. His mother died when he was young and his father was the slave master running the plantation.
Douglass was put to work at a young age, witnessing and experiencing many whippings. In 1833 he was moved to a poor plantation with a slave master named Mr.Covey
Mr.Covey treated slaves horribly, he had the reputation of a "nigger breaker" eventually he had succeeded in breaking Frederick Douglass
At age 18, Frederick was moved to Baltimore, there he learned how to caulk boats, he was worked to caulk local boats. He began his plan to escape by borrowing the identity papers of a free slave.
Using identity papers from a freed slave was very risky, if one were to discover that the identity papers were false, both Douglass and the friend he borrowed the papers from would be in danger. Douglass's attempt to escape would fail and he would be sent back to his slave master for a horrible punshisment.
Dressed as a sailor, Douglass nervously took his identity papers and boarded a train headed north on Monday morning.
