The book that I chose is Narrative Of the Life of Frederick Douglass An American Slave by Douglass Frederick Douglass was born a slave on a plantation in Tuckahoe about 12 miles from Easton in Talbot County Maryland He did not know who was his real father He heard some people said that his first master Captain Anthony was his father His mother was Harriet Bailey she was the daughter of Isaac and Betsey Bailey who were both colored and dark His real name was Frederick Augustus Washington Bailey Nobody knows the exact date of his birth but historians believe it was in February 1818 The main character of this book is Frederick Douglass He was a slave and for me he was a strong person emotionally because he didnt allow his surrounding affect the way he thought and future plans In the first chapters he talks about horrible scenes he sees in his childhood He explains when he saw his aunt being whipped and how the blood ran from his back Even though he depicts ugly reminisces like these of his childhood experiences one can feel the painful sentiments that he must have felt while writing his autobiography He might have been indifferent to what was happening when he was younger but as an adult he has a conscience He was taught not to think and feel because he was separated at birth from his mother At the age of seven her death was not sad to him because he received the news of her death with much the same emotions as that of a stranger There are many people in Douglass life Harriet Bailey is his mother who died when was born Colonel Edward Lloyd was a rich slave holder Captain Anthony was his first master and Mr Plummer was his overseer Captain Anthony had two sons Richard and Andrew and a daughter Lucretia Auld Lucretias husband Thomas becomes Douglass second master
