Rochester, August 29, 1868
Dear Harriet: I am glad to know that the story of your eventful life has been written by a kind lady, and that the same is soon to be published. You ask for what you do not need when you call upon me for a word of commendation. I need such words from you far more than you can need them from me, especially where your superior labors and devotion to the cause of the lately enslaved of our land are known as I know them. The difference between us is very marked. Most that I have done and suffered in the service of our cause has been in public, and I have received much encouragement at every step of the way. You, on the other hand, have labored in a private way. I have wrought in the day – you in the night. I have had the applause of the crowd and the satisfaction that comes of being approved by the multitude, while the most that you have done has been witnessed by a few trembling, scarred, and foot-sore bondmen and women, whom you have led out of the house of bondage, and whose heartfelt, “God bless you,” has been your only reward. The midnight sky and the silent stars have been the witnesses of your devotion to freedom and of your heroism. Excepting John Brown – of sacred memory – I know of no one who has willingly encountered more perils and hardships to serve our enslaved people than you have. Much that you have done would seem improbable to those who do not know you as I know you. It is to me a great pleasure and a great privilege to bear testimony for your character and your works, and to say to those to whom you may come, that I regard you in every way truthful and trustworthy.

Your friend,

Frederick Douglass.

O Americano mais fotografado do séc 19 Não foi George Custer (155 fotos) nem Walt Whitman ou Abraham Lincoln (130 cada). A pessoa dos anos 1800s com mais retratos é o abolicionista, escritor e político Afro-Americano Frederick Douglas. #frederickdouglas #themostphotographedamerican #portrait #19century #sec19 #retrato #afroamericano #afroamerican #fotografiaecultura

At the #African #American #CivilWar Memorial in D.C., some of the panels listing the nearly 200,000 African American soldiers who fought in the Union Army. Above is #FrederickDouglas's quote: "Who would be free themselves must strike the first blow." "Better to die free, than to live slaves."
