Date: August 18, 2012
Time: 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM
“Young Frederick Douglass in St Michaels” - Follow in the footsteps of Frederick Douglass during his teenage years in St. Michaels. Arriving as Frederick Bailey, a rebellious 15 year old, in 1833 and leaving in 1836 determined to acquire his freedom, his years in St. Michaels were critical in the development of this great man who went on to become probably the most important African American figure in the 19th century. The museum's 90 minute walking tour will offer an historical perspective of Mr. Douglass' life in enslavement and his return to reconcile with his former master.
A docent led 90 minute walking tour.
