Frederick Douglass

Frederick Douglass moved to Washington, DC, in 1871. He’d lived in or spent lots of time in New York, Massachusetts, Ireland, and England after he famously escaped enslavement in Maryland three decades earlier, and in 1871 President Hayes named the writer and abolitionist the US Marshal for the District of Columbia. He settled in Capitol Hill, at 316 A Street, Northeast, a short walk from the US Supreme Court and the Capitol.
