A man named Frederick Douglass was a slave, he was a very inteligent man. Douglass was worked extremely hard on his plantation. He is smarter then all the other slaves, he can read unlike the other slaves. One day a slave breaker named Covey was hired to work on him and break him thoughts of ever escaping slavery. Frederick did not like Covey at all. When ever Covey saw Douglass reading he would punish him. Douglass would be watched non stop by Covey to make sure he was on task. Frederick Douglass would be beaten even when he was sick,tired, and even dizzy. Frederick Douglass thought of Covey like the devil.He was tired of being treated as property and not a human. Douglass wanted to be free,Frederick wanted to escape.
One blistering hot day Douglass needed a break for a minute because he was feeling dizzy. Covey noticed this and went over to beat him for not working. He tried to tell him what was wrong, but Covey would not listen. Douglass was cruelly beaten until he crawled innocently into the tobacco barn. He escaped later that night into the woods where he met a man names Sandy.The wounds that he got from Covey were percisely healed by Sandy, Sandy gave Frederick magic to never be scared again.Douglass decided to return after being healed from Sandy.After returning from the escape into the woods Covey came to whip him, but Douglass went to protect him self which a slave has never done. A fought broke out between the two. Douglass and Covey both got in there kicks and puches.Douglass and Covey were going at it like peanutbutter and jelly. Douglass won the fight and was seen as an example to the others all around the world.
After the fight between Douglass and Covey,Douglass was respected by owners and seen as a leader and example to the other slaves.overtime they decided to fight back as well. Compared to the other slaves, he was treated like gold. Douglass wouldnt have done this if it wernt for Sandy, Sandy gave him the magic to stick up for him self, and Douglass used it. This was a big action throughout the whole world of slavery it let the owners know that slaves are getting smarter,tougher, and stronger. Other slaves saw this as an example, and decided to fight back and take action just like Douglass did. Overtime as slaves gained knowledge and power, slaves fought back and started to try to escape. As you can see Douglass had a historical action which changed the world of slavery tremendously.
