Frederick Douglass was born in 1800s in a plantation in Maryland. He was separated from his mother and did not know who his father was. Like many other slaves, he hopped from master to master throughout his life. One of his overseers was a man named Mr. Covey on mr.severes plantation . Covey was known as a “slave breaker” and would whip and hurt to make them do what he wanted.
One day in the hot sun Frederick was dying of heat exhaustion and dehydration. He passes out and Covey brutally kicks him in the head and body and yells, “Get up and get back to work!” He did this for an hour to Frederick. This would had never happened if someone did not tell Covey that Frederick passed out.
Frederick runs away because Mr. Covey brutally kicks him and yells at him and whips him on a day to day basis. This one day he runs into the woods and keeps running and Mr. Covey says. “ he will come back when he is hungry.” Frederick stops running and sees someone “Hello, who are you?” no answer “hello” this time there is an answer “hello my name is samuel who are you” “Hi i’m frederick nice to meet you samuel” and just but i little bit later samuel left and said “sorry frederick got to go” and sam was gone and frederick was all alone in the woods and is getting really hungry. It was either death or mr.Covey. And this is what happened..
Mr. Covey and Frederick got into a fight about Frederick running away. After fighting for a little while mr. covey tried to hold him down while asking for help. Another man named Hughes came over and tried to take Douglass down. frederick gave hughes a big kick right under the ribs and hughes could not fight anymore. Then Covey grabs a stick and tried to hit fredrick. The fight was going on for another two hours. Covey was huffing and puffing and Frederick won.
But when the fight was over mr. covey would never put his hand. On fredrick or never hit him in rage or whipped him ever again. And frederick was sent away from the plantation to another one.
And when he was moved he got into more fights and moved and moved again. And he was finally set free and became a very passionate abolitionist and wrote one of the greatest novels to help get rid of slavery for all.
