        Frederick Douglass never knew his birth day and when slavery was done he went to see the Aulds who remained, but no one could enlighten him. I will not tell you all the names of every abolitionist Douglass met because he knew all of his contemporaries. Douglass never knew his father or anything about him except that he was a white man, possibly his master. Douglass’ mother was Harriet Bailey, the daughter of Betsey and Isaac Bailey.

      Welcome to the life of Frederick Douglass. Childhood Frederick Bailey was born a slave in Talbot County, Maryland in , though he didn't know it.

Douglass again indicts the practice of breaking up slave families. Baltimore was a revelation for Douglass.
