The Frederick Douglass National Historic Site is the last home of Mr. Douglass, who is remembered as a nineteenth-century orator, abolitionist, and fighter for equality. He is also known for his contributions to the Civil War, serving as advisor under President Abraham Lincoln, who gave him the task of recruiting African American regiments to fight for the Union.
