The next day Douglass was doing his work and then Covey comes up to whip Douglass and he succeeds. Douglass get away from Covey and runs away into these woods. He meets this girl named sandy and sandy gives him a root and hope to go and be free. Sandy gives Douglass the chance to do something for freedom and to be in peace. Douglass runs back onto the field where Covey cant find him and then goes back to work.
Later that day Douglass goes back to working Covey finds him. Covey goes to beat him with his stick but Douglass blocks it and fights back. They slaves are surprised they've never seen this happen before. Douglass gets Covey pinned to the ground and Douglass fights and wins. Douglass knows now that Covey will not lay a finger again on Douglass.
Douglass eventually will become a free slave and will go on to always be remembered. Douglass learned from this that you should always have hope and always fight for your dreams. This experience will help Douglass later on by making him more appreciative in life. Douglass will become a great human being and always be remembered life long. Frederick Douglass will be free eventually and we hope he does Frederick Douglass.
