This early work by Charles W. Chesnutt was originally published in 1899. It is a biography of a great leader of the abolitionist movement, Frederick Douglass, and contains details of his childhood through to his career in office. This is a fascinating work and is thoroughly recommended for anyone with an interest in American history and the progress of racial equality. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions.
