Life and Times of Frederick Douglass is Frederick Douglass'
third autobiography, published in 1881, revised in 1892. The emancipation of
American Slaves during and following the Civil War allowed Douglass to go into
greater specifics of both his life as as slave and his escape from slavery in
this volume than he could in his two previous autobiographies (which would have
put both himself and his family in danger). It is also the only of Douglass'
autobiographies to discuss his life during and after the Civil War, including
his encounters with American Presidents such as Lincoln and Garfield, his
account of the ill-fated "Freedman's Bank," and his career as the United States
Marshall of the District of Columbia.
