Frederick Douglass, Henry, John, and Sandy are all slaves working on Mr. Freeland's plantation in Maryland.
Even after being arrested Frederick Douglass and his friends stayed united and were quiet
Frederick decided that he was tired of being a slave so he convinced his friends to run away with him
Guys lets run away, being a slave sucks!
Yea! We totally agree with you!
This is to certify that I, the undersigned, have given the bearer, my servant, full liberty to go to Baltimore, and spend the Easter holidays. Written with mine own hand, &c., 1835.WILLIAM HAMILTON
Frederick Douglass and his friends have devised an elaborate plan to ensure their successful escape. They intended to sail up they bay to Baltimore and Douglass has written protections for all of them, should any white man question them.
Frederick and his friends were betrayed and arrested.
We were betrayed!
We are have no idea what you are talking about sir. We are never attempted to escape
Who was the leader of your attempted escape and where are the passes?
Mr. Auld! What are you doing here?
I'm going to get you out of here and send you to my brother Hugh to learn a trade.
