The extraordinary Frederick Douglass was born in February 1818 and died on February 20, 1895. His devotion to women's suffrage, among many causes, was so complete that in 1872 he was chosen to be the running mate of Victoria Woodhull, the first woman to run for president of the United States. They ran together on the Equal Rights Party ticket. Cedar Hill, his home in Washington, DC, is an amazing place to visit.
